Garden leaders are the heart of our Seed-to-Table Program. Garden leaders are volunteers who work as a point of contact at community schools to bring the resources of Slow Food Denver to the children they work with. Garden leaders are volunteers and can be parents, faculty, or administrators at the schools.
Schools within the Seed-to-Table programs receive a variety of benefits, including:
- Free seeds and seedlings for their gardens.
- Monthly educational workshops for garden leaders on topics ranging from how to integrate the gardens into the common core to how to build your own light table.
- Access to the Youth Farmers’ Market program which helps to raise money for the gardens while bringing farm-fresh produce to the neighborhood.
- Assistance with all aspects of garden management.
The links below are designed for use by garden leaders, though anyone is welcome to see the types of materials that we have available for our network.
