Celebrate Earth Day at HPA
Hawaii Preparatory Academy will host its second annual Earth Day Family Celebration and Environmental Science Symposium from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 20 at the school’s Ulu Malama Terrace Farm on the Upper Campus. The event, which is free and open to the public, is presented in partnership with The Kohala Center’s Hawaii Island School Garden Network.
Student teams from HPA Middle School, HPA Upper School, Honokaa High School, Waikoloa Middle School and West Hawaii Explorations Academy (WHEA) will present reports on projects ranging from agro-ecology to ocean conservation.
Community members can choose to participate in one of four workshops: tree planting, history and cultivation of u‘ala, cooking with local foods harvested from the HPA gardens, and vermi-composting and compost teas. Lunch will follow.
To register, or for more information, please contact Koh Ming Wei at 443-9231 (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). HPA’s Ohana Sustainability events are funded by the Will J. Reid Foundation and the Richard Smart Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation.
The next Ohana Sustainability event at HPA will be the Sustainable Fiber Arts Symposium May 3-4.
