The Slow Food Russian River Educational and Media Team

The Slow Food Russian River Educational and Media Team meets the fourth Thursday of the month, 7 – 9 pm in Sebastopol, CA.

If you are interested in food education, in any of its zillion aspects, and love media, writing, photography, video, code, or curating stories, please contact us by email at SFRR Media Team

We create – under the general guidance of the SFRR Leadership Team – content for the SFRR website, social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google+, Instagram, and Flickr) and monthly and incidental issues of the SFRR Newsletter, send via MailChimp, and design and manage event publicity campaigns. The Team also maintains the Media Kit.

 

The Slow Food Communication Ecosystem, in part

Members of the team follow and participate in a network of websites and social media channels maintained by Slow Food staff or volunteers, internationally, within Slow Food USA, Slow Food California, and in the region. For the differences between a public, a closed, and a secret Facebook group see this explanation on Facebook Help.

Internationally

The Facebook page Slow Food International

Slow Food  is a global, grassroots non-profit association, linking the pleasure of good food to a commitment to the environment & community.

The Facebook page Terra Madre Salone del Gusto

Terra Madre brings together those players in the food chain who together support sustainable agriculture, fishing, and breeding with the goal of preserving taste and biodiversity.

The Facebook page Slow Food Youth Network

The Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) is an international network of young people who bring about changes in the field of food production and consumption. It was founded by a number of enthusiastic and motivated young people with a passion for good, clean and fair food, and with an interest in sustainability issues.

The (closed) Facebook group for Slow Food Convivium Communication Managers.

This is a FB group for people worldwide who volunteer in their Slow Food Convivium to create the best possible Website, Newsletter, Social Media Content, Event Announcements and Fundraising Campaigns to support their local groups to fulfill their mission. We network to brainstorm solutions and provide information about tools and good practices.

The (public) Facebook group 10.000 Gardens in Africa.

In 2010 Slow Food embarked on an ambitious project: to create 1,000 food gardens across Africa, 1,000 easily replicable models of sustainable agriculture, sensitive to different contexts – environmental, socioeconomic and cultural. At the beginning of 2014, this target has been reached, so what next? Slow Food relaunched and scaled up the project: creating a network of young people working to save Africa’s extraordinary biodiversity, to raise the profile of traditional knowledge and food culture and to promote small-scale, family farming.

The (public) Facebook group Slow Fish

With fishing, just as with agriculture, Slow Food strongly believes that every individual can contribute in his or her own small way to changing the mechanisms of a globalized food system based on the intensive exploitation of resources.
Join our campaign, support local, small scale fishermen!

 

Nationally

The (public) Facebook group Slow Food USA National School Garden Program

Slow Food USA’s National School Garden Program (NSGP) aims to reconnect kids with their food by teaching them how to grow, cook, and eat real food. Through confidence, knowledge gain and skill building, we want to empower them to become active participants in their food choices and ultimately responsible and informed consumers into their adult life. We view school gardens as an important part of the larger Farm to School movement (alongside education and local food procurement) and oftentimes a catalyst to more structural change (i.e. school gardens support cafeterias sourcing from local farms).

The goal of the NSGP is to support Slow Food chapters and leaders to become more effective in supporting school garden programs in their community. We hope chapters will serve as a school garden hub of important resources and assistance in the community.

To maximize our limited resources and build capacity within SF chapters to sustain school gardens in their community, we are sharing diverse resources including material on volunteer training, effective fundraising, and Slow Food curriculum to further embed the gardens into the school. Right now in this first year, we are working closely with 15 chapters in ten cities (Boston, NYC, Miami, Louisville, Austin, Dallas, Phoenix, San Diego, Orange Country, and Denver), but are looking to support chapters across the country.

We hope this Facebook group will help us promote communication and the exchange of resources between chapters and school garden enthusiasts nationwide.
