School Gardens

'Ele'Ele KindergartenersThe Kauai School Garden Network was established in 2010 and supports all schools, PreK-12, on the island of Kauai.

We provide funding, technical and volunteer support for school gardens, local food in local schools and the development of wellness committees that are able to address school specific concerns around healthy food and nutrition choices. In addition, we offer schools curriculum, training, and networking opportunities, and a resource-filled e-newsletter.

New in 2014, we began offering Organic Gardening Training and launched Village Harvest, a partnership with Kauai Master Gardeners to deliver fresh fruit to schools and after-school programs. We’re also onboarding two new AmeriCorps VISTAs, who will support schools in their district on a full-time basis.

We are also soliciting volunteers, interns and an AmeriCorps VISTA for this program. If you are interested, please check our Jobs & Volunteering page for more information.
