Snail Award

Slow Food Glades to Coast has developed the Snail award for school gardening in collaboration with FAU's Pine Jog Environmental Center. This annual award will be given to schools applying to Palm Beach County’s Green School Recognition Program that best create a food garden-centered educational program that promotes the Slow Food values of good, clean, and fair food.

These values are reflected in categories such as sustainability, promotion of food biodiversity, community building, incorporation of the garden in lesson planning, and school impact. Judges used a rubric based on these categories to evaluate Green School Recognition applications that documented a food garden.
