Innovation in School Gardens

University of Denver

This breakout session with the School Garden Network digs into teaching good, clean and fair food in the school garden, and gives you plenty of opportunity to share your own experiences around edible education. What challenges have you faced, and how did you overcome them to sustain your garden program? What type of support or resources would you like to see?

We will present ideas for how to increase the connection between the garden and the school lunch program. We’ll also discuss how to incorporate the Ark of Taste and Plant a Seed campaigns into your garden program.

This breakout session is available to participants of the Slow Food Leader Summit.
