Terra Madre is a bi-annual conference coordinated by Slow Food and held in Turin, Italy. At Terra Madre, food communities around the world meet to display the extraordinary diversity throughout the globe and to unite small-scale farmers and artisans who are committed to good, clean & fair food. This year's focus is on how our daily choices and the food on our plate determine the future of our environment, economy and society. The conference will address how to raise a collective voice and become active in solving problems affecting the the earth and the global community.
Our Slow Food OC chair, Linda Elbert has been selected as a delegate to attend this conference. Since she is a chef, she will be attending the Master Chef series at the conference as well as studying additional regional cooking on an organic farm following the conference. This event will be an opportunity to share the Terra Madre experience with our OC chapter.
