Raina Whiting – Growing Keiki

Date grant awarded: 10/20/2017

Growing Keiki, led by Raina Whiting, focuses on providing resources, materials and spaces for children in and outside of the classroom on rural Hawaii Island to learn and grow. This project works with community members, groups and outside organizations to provide meaningful place based and cultural experiences for children. Many of the opportunities include garden education, environmental based projects and a sense of place that goes beyond the traditional classroom setting and shares opportunities with children regardless of their socioeconomic background.
