HAF Educators Digest - Fall Quarter 2017

Friday, October 13, 2017

Aloha,

Welcome to the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) quarterly education newsletter! In an effort to keep our teachers up to date with the HAF programs they’ve signed up for, we will be distributing a newsletter at the beginning of each academic quarter.
 
In addition, we’ll also provide you with exciting news and happenings within our other programs. Our hope is to further involve educators, like yourself, in growing ag education opportunities and inspiring keiki to become the future leaders of Hawaii’s farming industry.
 
If you are interested in learning more about HAF’s other ag education initiatives, please contact us at iris@hawaiiagfoundation.org.
 
Mahalo,

Iris Mizuguchi, Director of Education Programs

Get your taste buds ready! Hawaii Agricultural Foundation (HAF) is kicking off the fourth annual Localicious Hawaii campaign and working with more than 150 chefs throughout the state. During the month of March, participating restaurants will designate one or more menu items that incorporate locally grown, caught or raised products as Localicious dishes.

For every dish sold, $1 is donated for the expansion of Hawaii’s Veggie U educational program.
