Slow Food is a community movement to savour good food, locally produced.

Members work toward preserving biodiversity, taste education and create communities of local producers and consumers.

I would love to hear if any users here are members of Slow Food.

It's a great inspiration to think about a cultural movement focused on eating local.

I like these local based ideas. One thing that wories me about the drive to local (and don't get me wrong I love buying my meat from the local butcher and my veg from the farmers market) is that many farmers from the poorest parts could be further marginlised. How do we bring them along with this kind of community based idea?
