Slow Food Barbados Educational Gardens Programme aims to reconnect youth with where their food comes from 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 a positive impact on the larger world of food and farming well into the future.

To date SFB has installed 17 gardens in 16 schools and institutions throughout the island. 

As we grow, we will not only add new gardens but continue to support and expand our existing gardens. The goal of the programme is to support garden committees and their volunteers to become more effective in creating and sustaining school gardens in their community.

Garden Support

Slow Food Barbados offers support in Train the Trainers workshops, resources, access to professional, fundraising design layout and implementation of the garden as well as assistance with integrating the garden into the exsiting curriculum.

Creating A Menu

Additionally, once the garden is established, we provide guidance on how to set up a farmers’ market and create dialog with the school canteen to work toward creating menu options for the students made with what is grown by them on site.
