Slow Food Norwich as part of the wider Slow Food movement in the UK is pleased to be part of an exciting new initiative being launched by Slow Food London very soon. The chair of Slow Food London, Shane Holland will be giving further details about the new Blog project as it grows and becomes more established over the next few months.
The new Slow Food Blog will feature all aspects of Slow Food, whether on rare and heritage breeds, the politics of the EU Common agricultural policy, Biodynamic horticulture and Viniculture, Slow Wine made form ancient vines, Grow your own projects or the quality of school meals today.
In addition to the category blogs there will also be an open forum in which members can recommend local shops, businesses and producers. There will also be a general discussion board where members can discuss and chew over the issues of the day, from horse meat burgers to the price of fish.
This exciting development is part of the new initiatives being launched both by Slow Food London, Slow Food Norwich and other Slow Food convivia throughout the UK over the coming months where the aim is to reconnect with many ethical food and drink producers both in the UK and abroad, as well as to many of our members who currently are looking to play a larger part in food issues and projects in their communities.
For further information on this initiative and how to take part, please look at the Slow Food Blog which gives all the necessary details.
