The shade house is going up

Through a generous grant from Lowe's we are building a nursery or shade house to support our Waikiki School Food Farm. The nursery will be used for the propagation of plants, seed starting and as an outdoor classroom. The shade will be a welcome addition to our farm as a place to meet away from the hot sun. The nursery will also serve as a tool storage area as well as a site to accommodate hand-washing and produce-washing sinks. The latter are necessary to meet the requirements for Food Safety Certification- more on this to follow.

Thank you to our teacher and community volunteers who have dedicated their Saturday mornings to painting and building. Our next community work day will be announced soon.
