Team Aggie Helps Grow Alvah Scott Elementary School!Posted on Oct 23, 2013 in Main
Team Aggie (made up of volunteers from HDOA) celebrated Farm-to-School Month by donating their hardwork and ag skills to help Alvah A. Scott Elementary School with their school garden on Saturday, Oct. 19th. See photos below of the fruits of their labor!
HDOA Chair Russell Kokubun wanted to find a school that needed help and Alvah A. Scott Elementary in Aiea welcomed the HDOA volunteers to prepare their raised beds for planting and to help clear their loi on campus. The garden clean-up was part of the Kokua Hawaii Foundation’s AINA in Schools program, which also provided lunch for the hardworking crew.
Team Aggie included: Chair Kokubun, Deputy Scott Enright, Ken Kakesako (Chair), Michael Opgenorth (MD), Earl Yamamoto (Chair), Noa Ching (Chair), Laura Ayers (AI), Becky Azama and her son and his girlfriend, Tom Matsuda (PEST), Linda Murai (ARM), Avis Onaga (PEST), Malcolm Onaga (PQ-Retired) and their daughter, Glenn Sakamoto (PQ), Hideki Yamane (MD) and Denna Macanas (QAD). Denna also brought some strong, young help in the form of students with the Future Farmers of America, now known as FFA. Mahalo to all!
