Kupa’a Farms actively works to educate the general public about agriculture and organic agriculture in particular. In collaboration with Maui County Farm Bureau, we have developed an Agriculture in the Classroom program that reaches into the classrooms of many of our islands grade schools. We have hosted field trips from intermediate and high school classes and worked with high school teachers (through the Maui Economic Development Board) to teach them about agriculture and the opportunities it presents to young people. We also offer courses on organic gardening and cover crops through the Maui Community College.
