Slow Food International and Slow Food UK are hosted an event at Borough Market in London today, Thursday 4 December, with Carlo Petrini (Founder and President of Slow Food International). The purpose of this event was to both highlight the work overall of Slow Food internationally as well as to talk specifically about the 10,000 Gardens in Africa project.
The project aims to set up new gardens (from 1,000 to 10,000 gardens) while at the same time promoting local consumption and the education of future generations. The network is also working to raise the profile of African biodiversity and food culture, and to raise both citizens’ and politicians’ awareness of important political campaigns (like that against the introduction of GMOs, land grabbing and the devastating impact of monocultures).
Mara Seaweed provided some Dulse seaweed to be tasted with bread dipped in oil for the event. We hope it was a success.
