your home grown farm produce, seeds or plant starts to share and swap
with others. Place it on the table in the back when you arrive.
Introduction to the School Garden movement
school garden movement is thriving throughout Hawaii and creating
real-life, hands-on educational programs for students of all ages. Learn
about programs that teach local students and their families to grow
nutritious, organic fruits and vegetables - on any budget, in any
community or living space.
Nio Kindla, Kirk Surry, Kathy Becklin, and Kerry Wilkins, co-founders of Grow Some Good - Educational School Gardens on Maui (www.GrowSomeGood.org)
- will discuss school gardens as learning centers for new gardeners;
how school gardens inspire better nutrition choices and greater access
to organic fruits and veggies for an entire community; and how to get
funding to help fund your community-driven garden projects.
As part of the evening,
'Project: Plant It!' volunteers will share ready-to-transplant organic
and heirloom garden starts, planted by student gardeners at Kihei
Elementary School and Lokelani Intermediate School.
Note: We aim to have a "trash free"
event and encourage folks to bring their own bowl and utensils. And, if
you like, a comfortable chair. It was standing room only last month!
