School Garden to Cafeteria With Rick Sherman, Oregon Department of Education, and Andy Nowak, Slow Food USA.  
School gardens are now being embraced nationwide, as is farm-to-school. But school garden-to-cafeteria?

The nation's two leading experts, from Colorado and Oregon, discuss all this and more.
