In recognition of International Permaculture Day, Community Work Day Program, Grow Some Good and Maui School Garden Network partnered on Saturday, May 4, to make a lasting impact at Lokelani Intermediate School in Kihei with nearly 300 volunteers from the Church Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints, teachers, parents and other community members.

The group planted hundreds of native species and fruit trees and beautified the library, office, special education and Hawaiian studies gardens to support campus pride and outdoor curriculum.
