Here are some great stories to check out:
Slow Food NYC started a new program this summer in Brooklyn, in areas where fresh fruit and vegetables are not readily available. The organization has adopted 3 neighborhood gardens and turned them into farm camps for the local kids. The participating children spend a half a day 4 days a week working in the garden and learning about where food comes from and how to cook with it. The goal of the program is to introduce children to good, clean, and fair food and hopefully they will teach their families and friends. This report by NY1 will give you a glimpse at the great work they are doing!
