Slow Food Gardens in Africa handbook
Slow Food promotes agriculture that is based on an understanding of the land and respect for the environment, biodiversity, and local cultures. This is a handbook that covers all the topics useful to understand and carry out activities in a garden
Slow Food technical handbook for educators
This is a handbook that covers all the topics that are in the Handbook but has been conceived for educators, and, therefore, goes much more into detail. It illustrates the motivations and sense of each operation (why local seeds are selected, why composting or crop rotation is carried out, why many different varieties are cultivated, why educational activities are organized), and explains how to implement each operation (from garden planning to seed selection, from water collection to the making a composter, etc.). This handbook also includes a series of practical fact sheets containing examples, photos and illustrations.
Slow Food Garden principles
Slow Food gardens embody the Slow Food philosophy and, as direct tools of change, the principles of the Slow Food Education Manifesto.
Education is individual and collective responsibility that belongs to all but must be close to each of us. It should be adopted and applied in schools and in politics, associations, cooperatives, cultural centers, families and any other possible contexts.
