March 9th Slow Food Evening: Building a Strong Local Food System

Our special guest for the March Slow Food Evening is Chris Hartman. Chris is making a major contribution to the development of a robust, local Rochester food system. Chris co-founded the South Wedge Farmer’s Market and the Good Food Collective Through the umbrella organization Headwater Foods, he is continuing to explore and experiment with innovative models on how we can create a robust, sustainable, local food economy. In addition, we will have a local raw-milk cheese tasting by Ann Duckett, owner of the Little Blue Cheese Shop, rescheduled from the last meeting because Ann had to cancel last month because of a cold. This is part of our continuing effort the Slow Food initiative on Slow Cheese.

As usual, we will be all sharing in a potluck dinner. Come meet other people interested in Slow Food, eat great food, and participate in a stimulating evening of discussion.
The event is at the Rochester Brainery in the Village Gate and starts at 5:30pm. Space is limited, so please RSVP at RSVP here for event . And see our guidelines for what to bring!
