Truck Farm!

Truck Farm is a fleet of gardens-on-wheels, an award-winning documentary film, and most recently a children’s book and album — all teaching young people about the joys of growing food.

TRUCK FARM in Hawai’i

TRUCK FARM rang in the new year with a January 6th screening at Sunset Beach Elementary on Oahu’s North Shore. The screening was presented by the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, local literacy mascot Rex the Surf Dog, and ‘AINA Kine Student Farmer’s Market, as part of a terrific event that included a visit by the Windward Nazarene Academy Truck Farm, kid-friendly gardening activities, tours of the Sunset Beach school garden, and a special performance by Truck Farm songwriter Simon Beins with local musician Jack Johnson. It was a blast! Heartfelt thanks to our hosts for organizing the event.
