Bucket Gardens!

Bucket Gardens is a recycling project that uses 5 gallon buckets, recycled from the food industry and recycled paint from paint suppliers to create individual "Bucket Gardens". Children paint a bucket and have their very own personalized garden to plant. Na Pualani Learning Ohana provides paint, brushes, the buckets cleaned and ready to paint and all other supplies and expertise. It's a great activity for parents and children to enjoy and it's a green project that turns a used bucket into a garden.

Bucket Gardens is a great learning activity for a variety of venues including businesses and parties and proceeds from these activities go towards supporting the Bucket Gardens in the Schools Project. Bucket Garden Workshops have been held at the Haleiwa Farmer's Market, Whole Foods Market, Kokua Market and Baby AWAREness.
