Slow Food ~ Sustainable Gardens

Inspired by the past, this talk helps to foster a better understanding of environmental stewardship, organic gardening, and the sustainable practices that will help us to live more sustainably in the future. The artisanal crafts known to gardeners through the centuries are once again taking root in the farmers markets, back yards and kitchens of the 21st century, and this talk helps to lead the way. We will explore Slow Food, Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT), and the rare heirloom produce that helped to feed and medicate us 12 months a year from our own back yards. So sit back around the table and enjoy this exploration of the new “democratization of American food” with the co-founder of Slow Food Seacoast.
