Farm to Fork @ MAʻO
Farm To Fork is an exciting opportunity for teachers, parents and students to enjoy a hands-on and minds-on experience at MAʻO Organic Farms. At Farm To Fork, we will learn and share together sustainable and organic farming practices- and even get to taste the food we grow! F2F is appropriate for all ages, keiki through high school, and we will work with you to tailor your visit to meet your learning objectives through connecting students to our ʻāina- that which feeds.
Together, we will meet the Farm To Fork A-B-C ʻs:
- Achieve your family or school's education and health goals.
- Become a model for environmental stewardship and sustainability.
- Connect your classroom objectives to our outdoor learning lab.
Treat your students to a real field trip: a rich learning experience that provides life-long lessons and teaches practical skills. Every visit includes:
- A walking tour of our 24-acre, certified organic farm;
- A hands-on, connective learning experience; and;
- A taste of fresh fruit and vegetables we grow.
Our farm is managed by Waiʻanae youth, ageds 17-24, who are part time organic farm interns and full-time college students. These youth truly exemplify our farm-to-fork and seed-to-spoon philosophy and practice as they daily prepare the fields, plant the seeds, care for the plants, harvest the fruits and vegetables, and package and sell everything they grow to restaurants, stores and farmers markets. As they learn to mālama ʻāina, MA`O provides them a full tuition scholarship to Leeward Community College, a monthly cash stipend, and other incentives that allow our program to grow both healthy food and young leaders.
