Kauai School Garden Network & Farm to School Hui

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

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 Kauaiʻs 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, we started a new initiative – Kauai 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.

In 2021, we are working to rollout the DOEʻs Garden to Cafeteria Program, which will allow for school garden produce to be consumed in school meals, working with pilot schools Waimea High, Kapaa High, and Kekaha Elementary.

If you are a teacher or school administration seeking capacity-building assistance with a school garden or sustainability project, please contact us at info@malamakauai.org or (808) 828-0685.
