We enjoyed a lovely Saturday afternoon helping out at the Punahou gardens and helping to plant Madre Cacao (or Gliricidia) trees that were started from seeds of our own peace garden trees! While there we noticed the beautiful lady bugs and monarch butterflies making their home!
Ms. Park's 4th graders enjoyed the tough job of removing more of our clogged weed mat. Soon we will have a new paved walkway just outside our plant nursery. And check out the team work needed to carry a 3/4" heavy piece of plywood to the plant nursery. The plywood is needed to finish our sink and kitchen area.

KG- Mr. Ragasa's class toured the edible schoolyard identifying and harvesting examples of edible plant parts. Once a basket of produce was gathered students sorted each item into groups representing different parts of the plant: roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds.
