Reflecting

After visiting a successful school garden program at a private school (in Marin county), I am definitely feeling the need to experience the other end of the spectrum. Involvement with programs in Mill Valley and the surrounding area, which are primarily composed of students from middle-class, wealthy families, could provide a valuable experience in terms of seeing these programs run and thrive and impact groups of children. However, this private school and schools like it, do not provide an accurate picture of the majority of schools in this country. It seems critical, for the sake of this study feeling real and conclusive and valid, to also look at and get involved with at least one public school in a low-income community under very different circumstances. That is where the social justice element comes in, the embodiment of Slow Food’s principle of good, clean, fair food for ALL.
