Slow Food in schools chair Barb Raymond also created an interactive game where kids had the opportunity to match seed to their final product (avocados, lettuce, carrots, corn, tomatoes and many others were highlighted).

“We were happy to see much enthusiasm from the children as well as have many adults curious about Slow Food stop by to ask questions” said president-elect Mindy Wiener. “As we continue to expand our visibility through community events such as Super Saturday or the Art Farm’s play on April 27 at the Mill Spring Ag Center and FENCE’s upcoming Nature Celebration in May, we hope to connect with children and adults alike who are interested in learning the many benefits of Slowing things down.”

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with members in 150 countries and 1,300 volunteer-led chapters around the world. The group was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and the disappearance of local food cultures. Today, we coordinate local, national and global programs and campaigns to pursue our vision of a world where everyone can enjoy food that’s good for us, good for farmers and workers, and good for the planet.
