11.18.14 – Terra Madre: It’s All About Food

StL Green Drinks - November

Where: Schlafly Bottleworks

Maplewood, MO 63143

When: Tuesday, November 18, 6:30pm

Save biodiversity, save the planet. More and more people are realizing that food is the central issue key to both planet and people’s health. Where it comes from, how it’s grown, fertilized, watered, manured, transported, stored, sold, cooked, and eaten covers just about every environmental concern Green Drinks has explored in the past decade.

Slow Food St. Louis has been around just as long. But not everyone realizes it’s as much an environmental movement as it is gastronomic. Terra Madre, that is, Mother Earth, unites glocalism, biodiversity, waste reduction, indigenous food communities, global fisheries, school gardens and more under one Slow Food umbrella.

Learn about Terra Madre, the international conference on food and farming held biannually since 2004. Come hear about the projects, the people, the food and dig deeper into Slow Food International, Slow Food USA and Slow Food St. Louis as we celebrate the harvest season and give thanks for 10 years of Green Drinks in St. Louis.
