Slow Food Denver’s Cooking from the Garden Program provides an interactive learning environment transforming children from passive food consumers to creators, and in doing so increase their health awareness. This learner-driven approach inspires children to develop healthy, lifelong eating habits by making the connection between where food comes from and how it is prepared. Children discover their own taste preferences, learn to create dishes they enjoy and derive self-esteem and pride as they watch their plants grow. Participation in the entire seed to table experience results in a more intimate relationship with food. Our curriculum includes activities and lesson plans that teach children the values and importance of healthy, delicious, and sustainable food practices.
