Urban Farming Initiative
Imagine having to feed a family of 300-400 each day. Then imagine that 85% of the food that you have comes from donations, and that fresh produce is rarely available. How do you bridge the gap?
Over the past two years, IHS has taken initiative in doing its part to make Honolulu a greener city. What began as an idea for a rooftop garden has morphed into a comprehensive urban farming project that includes several edible vertical gardens, edible ground landscaping, compost piles, worm bins, solar panels, lighting retrofit, and even the start of a rooftop garden job training center.
IHS has also been blessed to be a recipient of the Give It Fresh Today program (G.I.F.T.), which has brought more than 5,000 pounds of fresh produce to IHS.
