You can grow your own food. We can help.

Paradise Food Project

- Paradise Food Garden Project:

This is an ongoing project, initially funded by a $380 grant awarded by the Kokua Foundation. Many students with severe physical and academic challenges are in charge of the "Paradise Food" garden.  We have been growing our own vegetables and flowers in our garden since Sept. 2011, and have 50 more seed packages to plant there.  Our plan is to provide produce, seedlings, and small plants to our families and staff and to grow ourselves into great entrepreneurs and community contributors.  We also will provide food to those who are underprivileged. We have published a photo-journal of our school project and posted albums of photos and some videos of our "Conservation Clean-Up" PSA on www.stevensonbuccaneers.shutterfly.com. Check it out!

NEED - We need small flower pots, potting soil, a new hose, some tools, and a fence around our 30 ft. by 30 ft. garden (to keep decrease theft from vandals and animals).  Thank you so very much for giving us this opportunity to continue to grow beautiful fruits and vegetables.  You are welcome to visit and have a home-cooked meal, too, with us.
