In this week’s episode, Nourishing the Planet research intern Evy Drawec discusses Slow Food International’s 1,000 Gardens in Africa project, a project that assists schools, villages and other small communities to develop food gardens. The project hopes to create a global network of farmers, producers and food communities that will help to raise awareness about local food traditions and improve regional food security and nutrition.
