I’ve been spending my Mondays with kids this summer – either teaching my own groups of kids in my kitchen (called Cooking with Michele on Mondays – space still available in the last two classes) or with the Slow Food Seed to Table school gardens program – but today I’m off so I’ll share some of what I’ve been doing.

Fairmont Dual Immersion Academy is a DPS school boasting a very large school garden that is flanked on the other side by a Denver Urban Gardens community garden.
