SLOW FOOD LONG TABLE LUNCH AT ‘SPRINGVIEW’ WAGGA – 11.30 AM SUNDAY 20 OCTOBER

Long term committee member and enthusiast of Slow Food Canberra, Pennie Scott, has moved to ‘Springview’, a 160 acre rural property which is 27 km from Wagga. As part of this year’s Taste Riverina Food Festival, Pennie is hosting a long table lunch at her property to introduce the ‘locals’ to the ethos of Slow Food with the aim of establishing a Slow Food Convivia in Wagga. Some members of your Slow Food Canberra committee will be attending and it would be great to see more Slow Food Canberra members and friends join in what promises to be an enjoyable event. In the true spirit of convivial lunches, you are invited to bring your favourite food and beverages to share. Lunch will be enjoyed on the verandah at ‘Springview’ overlooking the paddocks from where you will see free-range cattle and pigs and you may also see echidna, wallabies and deer! As the lunch is limited to 50 participants, bookings are essential. Information and booking details are at http://www.waggawaggaaustralia.com.au/taste-riverina-food-festival/

Slow Food Canberra is collaborating with Urban Agriculture Australia (also known as Canberra City Farms) which is undertaking a project at Floriade to showcase an interactive garden plot display which demonstrates practical solutions for urban agriculture in people’s own backyards.  It will provide information on how healthy food can be grown in different urban settings, along with how people can go beyond their backyards and into their community to engage in sustainable food production and learn more.  Further information about the project is available at  http://canberracityfarm.wikispaces.com/Urban+Agriculture+Australia   If you would like to be involved in this exciting project please email urbanagricultureaustralia@gmail.com  In any case, make sure you visit the display!  Further information about Floriade is at http://www.floriadeaustralia.com/
