Revegetation and Restoration of Habitats Destroyed in the Maui Fires

Students will understand information on upkeep of agriculture such as how to properly propagate, different types of gardens, what types of plants will support other plants' growth, types of soil best for vegetation, and the different uses of plants. Other information students will understand is how to best sustain the plant's growth for the best outcome to educate the community when giving the plants away.
This curriculum is still under review by faculty. Units identified as Under Review have been submitted by educators. While they are available to view now, they are currently being reviewed by our curriculum committee for addition to this site.

Community Partner(s)

After reaching out to members of the community, the community partner that I had selected was Grow Some Good.

Havilah Mills volunteered into the classroom to demonstrate propagation with students, as well as provided a video on soil health to educate the students.
