Teachers from Hawai’i public schools can apply for Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Project Grants to help advance their environmental education goals. Previous grantees have used KHF funds for garden supplies, eco-footprint workshops, vermicompost trainings, and more. One school has raised enough worms to start a commercial-scale vermicomposting bin for their campus food waste!

Vermicomposting System Project

St. Anthony School, Kailua, Oʻahu

St. Anthony School students and teachers collaborated to accomplish a productive Vermicomposting System Project. The first batch of worms was cared for by the early elementary classes. The students and teacher sorted and collected food for their worms and increased feeding as their worm capacity increased. Congratulations to the students and teacher on a well-thought through a successful vermicomposting project.
