SAVE THE DATE April 2, 2017 (10 – 4) for Planting Slow Food’s Future: A public engagement session to envision a strong future for our local food movement
Ten Years In…
Slow Food Nova Scotia had its 10th anniversary in 2016. (yay!) Slow Food fights for good, clean, fair food for all – locally and globally. We get together to celebrate and enjoy amazing food, to strengthen our local food culture, to learn where our food comes from, to share skills, and to celebrate the traditions and cultural heritage behind them.
Ten years in, we feel it is time for diving deep and re-visioning the movement: What do we want the local food movement to look like? How can Slow Food best support this? What do we want Slow Food to offer as an organization? What do you want Slow Food to do – for the community and for its members?
We have questions, and we want to hear answers from you: farmers, fishers, chefs, home cooks, eaters, jam makers, pie bakers, beer brewers, educators, organizers. Slow Food member or not – if you are interested in continuing to build a strong movement that promotes and delivers Good, Clean, and Fair food for all, please join us for this day.
Let us know you are coming (so we can have enough chairs and food). We’ve posted a sign-up form here. Please let us know if you are coming and if you have any dietary restrictions.
Please pass this invitation on to others who might be interested.
Anne Stieger, professional facilitator, will be guiding us through a session where we will share inspiring experiences, envision a strong future for the movement, and create an action plan to get there.
You can learn more about Anne & her work here.
