Slow Food USA School Garden Network

Kim Aman, a former public school teacher, is the SFUSA Governor for Texas, SFUSA Garden Network Co-Chair, Slow Food DFW Board Member, and Program Director at Moss Haven Farm, where she holds the title of Farmer Kim, integrating curriculum on a k-6 campus. Additionally, she works with the Farmers Market Friends, Grow North Texas and the Dallas Food Policy Council, to support the local food system. Kim works as a consultant for schools in North Texas and across the country in creating sustainable school garden programs and authored the American Heart Association Teaching Gardens/Whole Kids Foundation garden curriculum. Her farming roots run deep from her Grandfather who grew crops in the rich soil of central Ohio. He taught her about the earth, soil, plants, animals and the beauty of a bite from a vine ripe tomato. Her garden programs have formed partnerships with the American Heart Association Teaching Garden Program, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, The Cooper Institute, Healthy Zone Schools, Texas Master Gardener Association and Whole Kids Foundation. On any given day, you can find Kim in the garden working side by side with her student farmers, teaching them about the land and the food they eat. She knows that she is fortunate to be doing what she loves and looks forward to every day that she can spend digging in the dirt.
