Kihei Elementary School Garden – First Planting

February 3, 2009 at 1:45 pm 2 comments

On Monday, February 2, students in Ms. Alana Kaopuili’s second grade science classes at Kihei Elementary, planted the first plants in the garden. By the end of the week, five classes planted cherry tomatoes, lettuce, green beans, and marigolds.

Many thanks to Emily Goss (School Garden Committee Chair) and Gene “Blaze” Weaver who did an incredible job (see the video).

Thanks also to Mark and Barbara Beebe for guiding the the installation of irrigation valves and piping and to Jim Kinney, manager of HISCO (Hawaiian Irrigation Supply Company, Inc.) in Wailuku for donating the irrigation materials.

    Hello, I am a agricultural research scientist with USDA Agricultural Research Service in Corvallis, Oregon. I am friends with Emily Goss. Emily told me about your school garden. Way to go!! I will be in south Maui on vacation March 5 to 10, 2009. I would love to come to your school and visit your classroom and make a presentation to your class about plants and soil and sustainability then if you would like. I would also be willing to present a community seminar on Pacific Northwest Agricultural Sustainability if the South Maui Sustainability group would like to host it somewhere.

    I hope to hear back from you.

    Aloha,
