In essence, they believe in a food system that is good, clean and fair.
- Good: Naturally delicious food created with care from healthy plants and animals.
- Clean: Grown and harvested with methods that have a positive impact on ecosystems and biodiversity.
- Fair: Produced by people who are treated with dignity and justly compensated for their labor.
Thankfully, for us West Michiganders, there is a local chapter. The local chapter, Slow Food Potawatomi Convivium, just started up a blog. Their blog highlights all the cool events that they are putting together. They have put together some screening of The Real Dirt on Farmer John on June 3 and 5 at two Schuler's Books locations in GR. There is also a Garlic Festival and Tomato Tasting Weekend coming up.
Be sure to check out their blog. To join Slow Food or get more info, contact their president, Amy Sherman.
