Kihei Elementary “Work & Learn Day” this Saturday, April 2nd

Saturday, April 2nd
8:00 – 11:00 A.M.
Kihei Elementary School

The Kihei School garden  is thriving with new spring plantings.   Come join us this Saturday, April 2nd for a fun morning of weeding and sprucing the garden in preparation for our chef harvest pizza parties  on April 7th and 8th.

Its a great opportunity to check out what’s been growing on at Kihei Elementary and also a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk story with some of the real heroes of the Kihei School Garden Program.  The teachers.

Kihei Elementary is fortunate to have a dedicated core  group of teachers who have really connected with the garden and give back to the program with they’re tireless participation in these workdays.  Want to get inspired?  Come garden next to these educators and you’ll  better understand the impact school gardens are having locally.

This weekend we have light maintenance planned: weeding, some irrigation work, soil aeration and compost turning.

Bring your gardening questions or come share your mana’o.  And while this is a living classroom its still outdoors so dress accordingly comfortable gardening clothes and closed-toed shoes,  hat and sunscreen.

South Maui School Gardens Project provides  fresh fruits, snacks and water.    Please bring your own cup or bottle.

Look for us in the middle of the campus, past the office and the new new upper campus playscape area.

Kihei Elementary School is across Lipoa street from the Kihei Community and Aquatics Center.  Gates open 7:45.

We hope you can join us.

South Maui School Gardens Project is always  bringing  new volunteers into  our classroom and weekly  garden maintenance and watering schedules.  They’re is always something to do!
