If you’re looking for a meaningful-but-fun way to celebrate spring, and good, clean, sustainable local food in advance of the weekend Earth Day observances, this Friday, April 20, the newly-rechristened Central Iowa chapter of Slow Food USA is having a ‘Dig In!’ kickoff event from 2 – 5 pm at The Cheese Bar on Ingersoll Avenue.
Local Slow Food members (including Farmer Jordan from Grade A Gardens) will be planting some heirloom seeds in the new raised beds, while we all enjoy some slow “bubbles and bites” in the sunshine on the new patio.
Give-what-you-can day. The event will also be celebrating Slow Food USA’s “Give What You Can Day,” where any donation amount* during the “Dig In” Friday event makes you a member of the new Slow Food Central Iowa group.
It is a great opportunity for new (and “old”) folks to get involved!
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization whose supporters around the world are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and environment.
*(Slow Food USA membership is normally $60/year)
