Slow Down and Be Nourished

Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. This movement heralds the production of sustainable foods and the promotion of local small businesses. They are naturally against the globalization of agricultural products.

It's about reintroducing consciousness to our food culture, to rebuild what has been disconnected in our mad rush for convenience and cheap prices. We can heal society by eating real food again. The more food we can grow ourselves, the better, and if not then we heal and contribute to a positive loop by supporting those who do.

In this video John Jemison, extension professor at the University of Maine explains how the Slow Food Movement believes that reconnecting to food creates a synergistic loop of positive outcomes, from our individual health to the health of society in general.

Food can heal us, food can bring families together, food can unite communities.

Let's slow down!
