"This manual was created by the Denver Youth Farmers’ Market (YFM) Coalition, which is
a partnership between Denver Urban Gardens (DUG), Slow Food Denver (SFD) and various
Denver Public Elementary Schools. DUG and SFD, in partnership with Learning Landscapes,
have collaborated for over a decade to deliver school garden programs to Denver
Public Schools. The Denver YFM Coalition was created in 2008 to provide a practical and
effective way to offer YFMs to all our school garden programs.
The Denver YFM Coalition promotes opportunities for schools to bring fresh, locally grown
produce to their communities by involving youth in school gardens and markets, thereby
promoting healthy eating."

"“Heart & Soil” is a family documentary that clips along with the pace of barefoot children and frolicking livestock. The film takes us on a journey into the rich landscape and lives of farmers in the southwest and into the bustling energy of farmer's markets and farm to school programs. The farmers are an inspiration for all of us to dig in more, grow our own, or support those who do for our personal and planetary health."
