East End Contributes to Slow Food USA’s New ‘School Garden Guide’

October 2, 2013 in Latest News, Slow Food Schools

Slow Food East End Chair Judiann Carmack-Fayyaz is one of the contributing editors for Slow Food USA’s new “School Garden Guide”. And Slow Food East End’s ‘Master Farmer’ Program and the Josh Levine Farming Internship Application are featured on pages 36-38 of the guide.

It’s exciting to see this beautiful resource for School Gardens and to know that projects managed by Slow Food East End are included in this national publication. The guide is also a good example of how your membership dollars are put to work

The colorful 147-page electronic guide is filled with ideas to help school gardens “Build. Grow. Learn.”  With wonderful graphics and beautiful photographs, it will inspire and inform anyone interested in starting – or improving – a school garden.

Chapters include Build+Design, Volunteers, Fundraising, Curriculum, Marketing, Special Projects, Policy, Evaluation and Appendices.

We urge you to take a look by downloading the Guide here. If you are involved with school gardens, you’ll want to print out the guide to use as a valuable resource with teachers, school administrators and parents.
