Kaua‘i School Garden Network & Farm-to-School Hui

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

We provide assistance with funding, technical and volunteer support for school gardens, school sustainability initiatives, local food in local schools. In addition, we offer schools curriculum, training, networking opportunities, and a resource-filled e-newsletter.

We also led Kaua‘iʻs 1st farm-to-school pilot, Māla‘ai Kula, at Kawaikini NCPCS and Ke Kula Niihau PCS to support the creation of culturally-relevant school garden and food program models serving Hawaiian keiki and youth.

In 2019, weʻve started a new initiative – Kaua‘i Farm-to-School Hui – to bring together stakeholders across the island to develop policies and projects needed to move farm-to-school efforts forward islandwide.

If you are a teacher or school administration seeking capacity-building assistance with a school garden or sustainability project, please contact the Farm-to-School Hui Project Manager, Joëll Edwards, at farmtoschool@malamakauai.org or (808) 828-0685 x23.
