The goal of Slow Food Miami’s Edible Garden Program is to create student –centered organic vegetable gardens and to introduce students to the pleasures of good, clean food and to teach basic garden skills.
With the combination of a garden grant, installation support, school incorporated curriculums and volunteer follow up, Slow Food Miami seeks to develop improved nutritional practices, plant-to-food awareness, and an understanding of sustainable environmental processes.
The edible school program is an effort to address childhood nutrition issues such as malnutrition and obesity and encourages a healthy, respectful attitude towards food. In addition, garden centered programs on a school campus affect the school habitat by changing the landscape of schools which often lack interactive and healthful environments specific to South Florida.
Slow Food Miami welcomes donations of any size. Through your kind donations, Slow Food Miami's continues its efforts to help ensure that all people eat food that is good for them, for the people who grow it, and for the planet.
