Theme of the the October 2016 Open House
Theme of the the October 2016 Open House is “Post Terra Madre”. What did we learn? What does it imply for the North Bay? Delegates will present.
We got an award for our 10,000 Gardens in Africa work that came with a proclamation and with four food items from Africa that we can use in some foods for the Open House. The event is free (with donation opportunity), potluck, and for current Slow Food members.
We also will be also talking about an 2017 event, Slow Food Nations event in Denver, July 14-16, 2017, a Terra Madre Salone del Gusto for the USA.
California is in a great position to have a large presence there in various categories, such as Slow Cheese, Slow Meat, Slow Beer, Slow Wine, Slow Cider, and Ark of Taste. Let’s develop some ideas about this at our convivial get-together.
