A special Slow Food Garden

We would like to introduce you to the new SFYN community founded by Sagara Mamoudou and Adama Thiam: SFYN for the agroecological gardens in Bamako. 

The community has created a school garden in Sirakoro, in collaboration with the children, parents and citizens of Sirakoro. 

The idea: the school garden promotes Slow Food principles in a practical way. They have planted 60 trees on the way to the school and grow vegetables and herbs in the garden. 

Mohamed Diabaté, 15, a student in the 9th grade says: I work regularly at the school garden with the director and my classmates. We are learning a lot with him and thanks to Slow Food about how to make boards, seed, reproduce the seeds and how to water…
