I would appreciate learning about any restaurants in your cities/area who
are buying produce from community gardens and local farmers.  Please reply
directly to betsy@chefscollaborative.org.

There is a tremendous number of these that could be turned up via the local
SlowFood groups.

If you go to the link at
you can then look up the SlowFood groups in each state.  Most of the local
leaders would probably help out on your question and might also add you to
the local email newsletter.  Over time you could add the new
garden-restuaurant connections that are mentioned in the various
newsletters. The USA group is also devoted to sponsoring school gardens if
that is some info you are looking for as well.

In the meanwhile you could get some of the info from major event listings
from the US national calendar:
For example
"Slow Food Berkshire Columbia will hold its first annual festival featuring
heritage meats and heirloom vegetables from local  ..." or
"The French Culinary Institute will close its school for one day so that it
can open its doors to Slow Food members and the public to host the best
products and purveyors from New York City. Tastings will include meats, raw
milk cheeses, fruit, spices, breads, ice cream, cider and wine to name a
few. "
