Grow Some Good raised $37,000 on Saturday, March 8, for Maui's next generation of farmers, chefs, teachers, scientists and entrepreneurs.
Local chefs and more than 350 school garden supporters celebrated all the good things growing for students in South and Central Maui school garden programs at the Second Annual Taste of School Gardens event.
Proceeds from the evening benefit Grow Some Good, currently providing school garden program support in seven locations in South and Central Maui.
The Second Annual Taste of School Gardens event held on Hotel Wailea’s Sunset Lawn offered nine restaurant stations, where guests sampled gourmet dishes made from local and school garden-grown ingredients prepared by Maui’s premiere chefs.
