Over a hun­dred school and com­mu­ni­ty vol­un­teers came down yes­ter­day to par­tic­i­pate in our very first Liholi­ho ‘Aina Gar­den Par­ty! Liholi­ho com­mu­ni­ty con­trib­u­tors worked inter­de­pen­dent­ly to build six 4′ x 12’ raised gar­den beds, a green com­post struc­ture, and paint­ed beau­ti­ful signs to label gar­den beds for each grade lev­el. Alto­geth­er, we moved 7,900 pounds of soil! Now we are ready to start plant­i­ng!

Spe­cial thanks to com­mu­ni­ty vol­un­teers from Kokua Hawaii Foun­da­tion, Hands in Help­ing Out (HiHO), 12th Ave. Grill, Hula Grill Waiki­ki, and UH Manoa Mas­ter Gar­den­ers Pro­gram who took time out of their three-day week­end to help with Liholiho’s gar­den pro­gram.

ATTENTION: If you are inter­est­ed in vol­un­teer­ing with our ‘Aina in Schools pro­gram to teach and inspire envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship or child­hood nutri­tion please con­tact Ms. Shimizu, ‘Aina Team Coor­di­na­tor, in the Con­tact Us page using the sub­ject line “Aina in the Schools”.
