Outdoor Learning Center Brochure

Outdoor Learning Center

This school year, we created our Outdoor Learning Center which consists of our Native Hawaiian garden, aquaponics lab and pipeline worm bin.  We could not have completed these projects without the generous donations and support from numerous individuals and companies.  Take a look at what we were able to accomplish this school year (click on the link)!  We can't wait to see what is in store for next school year!

Our aquaponics is finally here!  Thank you to HEI Charitable Foundation, iSIS Hawai'i, Hapa Farms, and Chevron for helping us to make our aquaponics a reality! 

Yellow Ohi'a

Thank you to Ryan Peralta and Terrence Toguchi, Division of Forestry and Wildlife, for donating a yellow ohi'a plant to our school garden!  Thank you to Stephanie Hurder who spoke with our 4th grade students about Native Hawaiian plants!  Ms. Fong's class had the honors of planting the yellow ohi'a in our school garden! 

Garden Harvest

We harvested our first kalo and 'uala from our school garden.  A fun time was had by all who came to work in the garden!  Mahalo nui to Kumu Pomaikalani who taught us how to harvest the kalo and 'uala!  The garden club members replanted the kalo and 'uala.
