Slow Food Santa Cruz: Edible Gardens Tour

This year, the Edible Gardens Tour will travel south to Watsonville school gardens. Come join Slow Food as they explore these programs that engage children and teachers in organic gardening, provide fresh nutritious snacks at recess, and share organic vegetable boxes with the families of participating students. They are excited to help raise awareness and funds for these important programs that bring the Slow Food principals of Good, Clean, and Fair Food to the very population that works in our local fields. By engaging the youth in gardening and producing fresh food, school gardens can help heal the broken systems surrounding conventional agriculture.

Meet at H.A. Hyde Elementary School, starting at 10 a.m. The tour will move to other gardens from there.

There will be an after-party and silent auction to raise funds for Slow Food Santa Cruz and the Watsonville school gardens, starting at 2 p.m., at Elkhorn Slough Brewing!
