Slow Food Sonoma County North has relationships with 7 elementary schools and after-school programs in northern Sonoma County. The goal is for each school to create and maintain a garden with student participation. The convivium provides support and resources such as volunteers, Ark of Taste plants and seeds, tools, and access to farmers to teach students about seasonal crops, planting, caring for, and harvesting vegetables.
Resources from the School Garden Network are also recommended to each school. Each year an Open Garden is held at one of the garden sites for sharing information and networking among teachers, garden personnel and volunteers from all the sites.
