Rome Sustainable Food Project

The Rome Sustainable Food Project provides the community of the American Academy in Rome with a collaborative dining program that nourishes scholarship and conviviality. Guided by the indomitable spirit of the Roman table, it is our aim to construct a replicable model for sustainable dining in an institution. In 2006, Alice Waters envisioned the Rome Sustainable Food Project as an eco-gastronomic endeavor that would be a logical extension of the Academy’s values.

Who We Are:

Started in February 2010, Olivewood Gardens, a 501(c) 3, is a community and garden resource facility and home to the International Community Foundation. Olivewood Gardens is a Type 1 supporting organization of the International Community Foundation. The house, gardens, and property were donated to the foundation by the Walton family in 2006 and later gifted to Olivewood Gardens in 2010.

Our staff serves our community with the help of dedicated volunteers including:

Ballymaloe Cookery School Organic Farm and Gardens

 Slow Food Councillor for Ireland, Darina Allen has been running an innovative ‘Grow and Cook’ programme at Ballymaloe Cookery School since 2005 to teach local school kids how to produce and cook their own food. Here she describes the programme in more detail.

Lang Ranch Wellness Committee

We just got approved to move forward with our garden. The principal has made it clear that although he likes the garden idea, it's not his top priority. I want to be able to inform teachers about available lesson plans and ideas and get them in our new garden and use it.

Hiland Hall Garden

 Hiland Hall Garden is a beautiful historic garden located in the village of North Bennington, Vermont. The garden and grapery serve as an outdoor classroom for gardening, art and healthy eating for local schools.
