Slow Food Nation

Get excited, Slow Food Nation is coming to SF next weekend!  The Slow Food Movement  (as we’ve mentioned before) has been gaining momentum for some time now.  They’ve organized one of the largest events so far and it’s coming up next weekend, right here in San Francisco.  

Here are some of the highlights you should check out:

-Attend a lecture by Joel Salatin of Polyface farms.  He’ll talk specifically about the sustainable farming practices he employs.  (He’s a featured in the book The Omnivore’s Dilemma.)

-You can browse thousands of booths in the taste pavilions and gorge yourself on some really tasty food. 

-You can sign up to volunteer for various projects around the city.   For example, they planted a Victory Garden  outside city hall on July 1st and all the food that’s harvested from it will be donated to local food banks and meal programs.

-Listen to some great music from people like Gnarls Barkley, The New Pornographers, and more.

-Pick a special dinner to attend with one of your favorite Bay Area restaurants

You better hurry, they’ve already sold out of morning tickets for both Saturday and Sunday!
