Hoa’Aina O Makaha is made up of an amazing group of people, headed up by Gigi and working in partnership with Makaha Elementary School. They focus on “Learning by Doing”, by providing hands on activities as they relate to classroom subject matter, as well as the important task of “growing people”. Children learn in this classroom without walls and focus on sustainability, culture, composting, plant life cycles, food systems, and animal care. Their Grant in Aid request will help facilitate and continue their container gardening initiative, which hopes to provide small container gardens to households all over the Waianae coast, teaching them to be healthier via gardening at home. If you have not visited this tiny parcel of paradise, I highly suggest you go check it out!
