Slow Food Sac and Grant High School Supporting School Gardens in Africa

Slow Food Sacramento has created, through a donation by Kingbird Farms, its first relationship with one of Slow Food International’s 1,000 Gardens in Africa. We have partnered the GEO Program at Grant High School in Sacramento with Victoria School Garden in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

We’re looking forward to some photo sharing between Annmarie Kennedy of GEO and Sifuni Wilson, Head teacher of Victoria Primary School. The school is currently focusing on improving access to water.

Carlo Petrini, the founder of Slow Food, wants to grow this program to 10,000 gardens! Would you like to help support the Victoria School project or help Slow Food Sacramento adopt another garden? Contact charity@slowfoodsacramento.com
