Students Feed the School and Their Community

Island living may seem like paradise, but in remote places like Maui, Hawaii, dependence on imported food is a problem. So students at the Hana School are building community and addressing the local food issue directly.

They have grown over 200 pounds of sweet potatoes, and tend an orchard of 90 fruit trees of all kinds. Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke, a program whose name means "In working, one grows,” supports the garden and helps students prepare food for the school and the community around it.
