Our second fundraising dinner to support our School Gardens Project is at Trading Post Restaurant in Cloverdale featuring produce from Lantern Farm.


Every dinner you order through Slow Food from Trading Post for August 25 will raise money for the project. We invite you to support our Snails and our school gardens at the same time!

Trading Post is one of our Snail of Approval restaurants. Using vegetables from Snail of Approval Lantern Farm, Trading Post is collaborating with Sonoma County North to raise funds for our chapter’s School Gardens Project

Dinner pickup is at 5 pm or 6 pm.

For locations in Healdsburg and Windsor, free delivery is available.

If you choose not to order dinner on August 25, you may buy a gift certificate worth $20 at Trading Post plus your donation for school gardens. We will mail the certificate to you.

Although the pick-up date is August 25, we must place the orders with Trading Post by August 15. Please sign up now to participate in this event!

Some Information About Our School Gardens Project

Slow Food USA’s School Gardens Network aims to reconnect youth with their food by teaching them how to grow, cook and enjoy real food. Through increased confidence, knowledge gain and skill building, we want to empower children to become active participants in their food choices. By becoming informed eaters, today’s children will help make positive impact on the larger world of food and farming well into the future.

The goal of our chapter’s School Gardens Project is to support educators, volunteers and garden leaders to help build sustainable school gardens in our community. We work with 8-10 gardens in Sonoma County every year by providing:

• resources and references (books, websites, organizations, tools, supplies, materials, curriculum, grant information, etc.)

• volunteer assistance

• Ark of Taste seeds, transplants, and educational signage

• annual Open House at one of our gardens

• reimbursement of up to $100 per garden for garden-related expenses

• participation in Plant a Seed Program

• annual gift of a garden related item (e.g., book, tool, curriculum)

• Slow Food Curriculum Good and Clean (Fair is in progress)

Our project collaborates with Master Gardeners of Sonoma County Youth Garden Project, Sonoma County School Garden Network, and the Permaculture Design Program. We have granted additional funds for special projects such as irrigation.
