Mālama ʻĀina Field School students tour PVT
Students from the Mālama ʻĀina Field School in Nānākuli paid a visit to the PVT facility on July 9. Mālama ʻĀina takes the classroom experience outside in an effort to make science and math more tangible to students by giving them place-based learning activities in the field.
About 16 students, 8th and 9th graders from Nānākuli Intermediate and High School, toured the facility aboard a big yellow bus, making stops along the way at areas where recycling activities were underway.
The six-week Mālama ʻĀina program incorporates a specific theme each week. Themes include water, watersheds and waiwai (wealth); agriculture and food sustainability; the ahupuaʻa of Nānākuli plants, animals and people; and energy and managing our waste (which is where PVT came in).
PVT welcomes student and community groups that would like to come and learn more about the facility. To request a visit for your group, write to: PVT Land Company, 87-2020 Farrington Highway, Waiʻanae, HI 96792.
