ESH Maui participants contribute sustainable gardens at UH – Maui College

This past week, several of ESH Maui participants who attend the University of Hawaii – Maui College were involved in raising two garden beds on the campus. As part of the UH – Maui College sponsored program, Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM), the eco-conscious participants, Ben, Nathan, Howard and Corie, came together and decided to what plants to grow and share with others. They chose to grow an edible flower garden and others with herbs, fruit and vegetables.
