Slow Food Denver’s Seed-to-Table School Garden Program creates meaningful relationships between young people and food in order to transform the school food system. By placing an emphasis on hands-on experiences, community interaction, and the pleasures of the table, Slow Food Denver’s Seed-to-Table projects help to strengthen the food communities of tomorrow by engaging youth today.
We work closely with Denver area schools to teach students where their food comes from, how to prepare it, who grows it, the importance of food choices and the pleasure of sharing with friends and family.
In 2017 the Seed-to-Table Program supported:
300 School Garden Classes
70 Youth Farm Stands
48 Cooking Classes
