World-class chefs recently led garden recipe workshops with more than 600 students from April 30 to May 2 in the newly expanded garden space in the heart of the Kamali'i Elementary School campus in Kihei.
Grow Some Good hosted the "Art of Pizza" workshop at Kamali'i Elementary School, inspiring students to top their pizzas with basil pesto, marinara, beets, carrots, zucchini, bell pepper and eggplant harvested from the school garden and additional veggies donated by Mana Foods.
