A thriving Food Community

Through social activities, we explore and celebrate the Slow Life, and share ideas that promote wholesome living over convenience and monocultures. Being 'foodies', we often find that the best way to do that is over a good meal.  As we don't get any funding, most of our events have a fundraising element to them, which enables us to continue to promote all things Good, Clean and Fair in our region. Of course we also try and align with other organisations that share the Slow Food philosophy, so we have a bigger voice and reach more people.

Our main projects for the South Coast are:

  • Shake the hand that feeds you: Producers Grant, Producer's Directory, Promoting Farmers Market(s)
  • Chefs/Cooks, Producers and Providores Alliance: Snail of Approval
  • Hands on workshops and events to learn more about growing and preparing food
  • Menu for Change to understand the impact of your daily food choices and how to improve

Being part of a global movement, we also support international projects that are important in realising a better, cleaner and fairer food system:

  • Ark of Taste - a global project that helps protect our unique food biodiversity
  • Gardens in Africa - sponsoring local veggie community gardens
  • Menu for Change - a global campaign linking food choices to climate change
