On March 8, 2014, the Locations Foundation completed their second Annual Legacy Project at Keone’ula Elementary and capped it off with a Reveal Day on March 15.
Keone’ula Elementary was selected as the Legacy Project School because of their desire to implement sustainable farming, aquaponics and outdoor gardening into their curriculum. The objective of their program is to promote reading, analytical, and mathematics skills through the science and sustainable farming initiatives.
The $25,000 grant from the Locations Foundation built an outdoor hale so teachers can facilitate outdoor lessons on the farming objectives in a shaded environment. In addition, the Foundation provided volunteers and additional resources to spruce up their existing gardens, build additional planter boxes for each grade, clean up existing playground sets, and paint safety curbs and parking lot areas.

The Foundation partners with the school to ensure these programs are sustained for the next several years – helping produce measurable results. The Foundation also introduced the Keone’ula Elementary staff to the staff at Palolo Elementary School, last year’s Legacy Project School, so they could use the knowledge and practices of Palolo’s staff in the area of sustainability, engineering and science exploration.
Past Legacy Projects
Last year the Foundation selected Palolo Elementary as their Legacy Project School for their integration of sustainability lessons at all different grade levels. This curriculum included the use of cafeteria food waste for composting, integration of natural farming, and multi-level aquaponics. Palolo Elementary staff has found that the emphasis on farming and science dramatically improves reading, writing, and math scores as students practice those skills while engaged in the farming and science activities.
The Foundation's grant to Palolo Elementary funded the new science lab with equipment needed to facilitate such learning initiatives. Palolo Elementary staff has now taken that learning to another level with the implementation of engineering and computer programming concepts in their classrooms. It’s the perfect example of what type of growth the Locations Foundation Legacy Project aims to support. Because of the continued progress of the school, the Locations Foundation provided additional funding this year to help with the maintenance of the science lab. The Foundation’s objective is to continue to collaborate with the Legacy Project schools in the future.
