Thank you to everyone who attended our potluck picnic yesterday! It was a wonderful convergence of fabulous food, sparkling conversation, and provoking ideas. I’m really pleased with the group we have put together so far…we’re going nowhere but forward!
Owen Murphy, faculty advisor and outstanding individual, sent me a link to an article in the NY Times about Slow Food Nation, an event happening in San Francisco (my dear hometown!) over Labor Day. I wish we had the means to up and leave for it, but we can live vicariously through its website, www.slowfoodnation.org.
Anyway, the article is interesting and it’s right here: NY Times: Slow Food USA Preps for Its Big Moment. Note the shifts that Slow Food USA is making (less elitist, more inclusive). This is how I want Slow Food CU to evolve…as it turns out, we’re not middle-aged women selecting fine cheeses at the market each week. We’re college students!
