New Monthly Series! Slow Food Evenings: Understanding and Changing our Food System

The first of the Slow Food Rochester Evenings: Understanding and Changing Our Food System start this month - April 25th and 29th. These monthly meetings involve a potluck dinner where we discuss a film or reading, or have a speaker. The goal is to keep these group small and intimate, so we will offer two dates each month and space will be limited. RSVP is required! The April meetings will focus on healthy soil, the origin of all healthy food, and include two videos by Debra Coons Garcia: Soil in Good Heart and Walking and Talking with Vandana Shiva.
