Our Motto:  Grow, Cook, Eat, Enjoy

Our Purpose:  Teaching the youth of Hawaii how to grow, cook, eat and enjoy sustainable foods grown on our islands through education.

Why should we teach kids about cooking?

Huerto Semilla Cucurbitácea/ Kinder Tri-Ciclo

At Tri-Ciclo Kindergarten we are seeking to reduce the gap between children and food, and as a major goal, with the Nature. We present the garden as a place where everything has to be respected and welcome. Where bugs and plants dance together a song about symbiosis, collaboration, respect, patience, sacrifice. The garden is the place where we learn how not only to produce food, but respect each other, is the place where we not just observe, instead we are an active individual. Where we also chop, eat, and share.

She also supported the installation of recycling and composting infrastructure around the school.
