The Ark of Taste is a living catalog of delicious and distinctive foods facing extinction. It’s a tool for farmers, ranchers, fishers, chefs, grocers, educators and consumers to seek out and celebrate our country’s diverse biological, cultural and culinary heritage. By identifying and championing these foods, we keep them in production and on our plates. Slow Food USA’s National School Garden Program is launching an Ark of Taste Gardens Project. School gardens are an excellent place to bring these foods to a community and this project is a perfect fit for teachers who want to introduce their students to topics like biodiversity, heirloom plants, seed saving, historical roots of cultural foods and unique flavors from the garden. This month’s webinar has a fantastic line up of speakers, including: -Megan Larmer, Director of Strategy and Community Engagement for Slow Food USA, who will give us an overview of The Ark of Taste -Cindy Joseph, teacher at Cypress Bay High School in Florida, who will talk about her student nomination project -Mim Michelove, Director of Farm Lab for Encinitas Union School District in California, who will share the school farm to cafeteria initiative -Andrea Branchini, Writer/Recipe Developer for Slow Food USA, who will explain her Ark of Taste Cookbook Project Video Rating: / 5 Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack helped plant a fruit and vegetable garden at a Washington D-C public school to provide healthy food to the students.
