Grow Hawai'i & Hawai'i Association of Independent Schools
Grow Hawai'i is a pilot program of the Hawai'i Association of Independent schools, designed to connect students to their environment, community and food systems by supporting the development of school gardens and farm to school connections at independent, regular public and charter schools. The program directly supports fifteen schools on O'ahu, and works to build capacity for garden-based education and local school food statewide through participation in the Hawai'i Farm to School and School Garden Hui, the Hawai'i School Garden Task Force and the Hawai'i nomination committee for the USDOE Green Ribbon Schools Award and the Schools of the Future Conference.
