SFUSA School Garden Guide
From design, implementation and curriculum to fundraising, volunteers and school policy, this comprehensive “how-to” guide offers a clear roadmap for developing a successful school garden program in any community, based on Slow Food values of:
Good, Clean and Fair
“Good” food that is delicious and healthy for the body; “clean” food that is sustainably grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers; and “fair” food that provides reasonable compensation and safe working conditions for those who grow and prepare the food.
Access, Taste and Joy
Grow fresh food where processed and/or fast foods are prevalent, with an emphasis on seasonality (for best flavor) and community in growing, preparing and sharing the food.
Biodiversity, Culture and Traditions
Demonstrating respect for local food cultures, protecting these traditions and creating awareness of growing foods that are at-risk of extinction.
