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.
It’s also 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.
For more information. You can find out more information about the “Dig In” event, or about Slow Food Central Iowa (formerly known as Slow Food Des Moines) on the group’s Facebook page.
*(Slow Food USA membership is normally $60/year)
