Youth Farm Stands

The Denver Youth Farm Stand Coalition, a joint project between Slow Food Denver and Denver Urban Gardens, supports metro area schools in hosting their own youth farm stand. Schools receive market training and supplies. The coalition also provides distribution for supplementary produce from local Colorado farms to each farm stand. For more information about how your school can participate contact info@slowfooddenver.org to get started.

You can find more details in the Youth Farm Stand Toolkit.
