5th Annual School Garden Tour

Are you wondering how some schools in the Denver area are making education more meaningful or perhaps curious as to how different schools are digging in to the school garden scene?  Wonder no more and come on the tour! Spend a late August Sunday afternoon with Slow Food Denver’s Seed to Table program as we highlight three of them.  All kinds of valuable experiential learning is happening outside of the traditional classroom.

Kids are making connections between required curriculum and the natural world.  They are awakening their senses with food from the garden.  This year our tour will be filled with the smells and tastes of the harvest.  At each stop we will highlight different garden produce with tastings and simple “cooking”.  See how Slow Food and schools, in partnership, are fostering an appreciation of good food – where it comes from and the pleasure within.   -Allie, Seed-to-Table Program Director

When: Sunday August 30th, 12-4pm
Where: Morey Middle School, Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment, and Gilpin Montessori Public School
Cost: $10 School Garden Member
$20 Community Supporters
