MEDIA RELEASE

For the next six Wednesdays, the community is invited back to Malaai: The Culinary Garden of Waimea Middle School for a weekly student-run “Farm Stand.”

Beginning March 6, the Farm Stand will be open 1:30-3:15 p.m. each Wednesday.

Located in the back of the school campus near the entry to the organic Malaai learning garden, the Farm Stand will offer a variety of fresh produce – most of which is grown by students.

Produce offered for sale will include a variety of leafy greens, kabocha squash, potatoes, herbs, organic eggs and cut flowers, as available. There may also be some produce donated by local farmers.

The Farm Stand was conceived to provide students with the real experience of growing, harvesting, cleaning and preparing produce to sell, and then handling sales and learning all the steps and entrepreneurial skills required to manage a small business.

Funds raised will be used by sixth to eighth grade students for a specific project to enhance their outdoor garden classroom.

For more information, call Alethea Lai at 989-7861 or email: alethea@malaai.org.
