More than 250 North Shore residents and Turtle Bay Resort employees apply for a coveted garden plot
Turtle Bay Resort and Pono Pacific held a lottery on July 26th to select the 10 North Shore and Koʻolauloa residents and 10 Turtle Bay employees who will become caretakers of their own 500-square-foot plot in the new Turtle Bay Community Gardens. More than 250 people applied for a coveted garden plot.
Founded by musician Jack Johnson and his wife Kim, the Kokua Hawai‘i Foundation’s (KHF) mission is to support environmental education in schools and communities across Hawai‘i.
In 2017, Turtle Bay Foundation recognized KHF with $10,000 and its special Community Award. The funds were used to build and implement programs in North Shore schools to teach farm-to-table learning, recycling and plastic reduction.
