· A student driven Slow Food chapter at Sonoma State University
· Working to promote quality, locally produced food on our campus and in our community.

We are guided and sponsored by the Russian River Convivium.


· Food production is a large contributor to environmental degradation throughout the world. In fact, 25% of all GHG's emissions are the result of industrialized agriculture.
Farm workers are the most exploited labor force in the American economy.
· Our food production system is extremely fragile and is showing signs that it may collapse.
· Food is a culture-creator. It brings people together.
· Food not only nourishes: it gives us pleasure.

Garden Work Day
Sunday June 6th
9.30a - 12p
Slow Food Plot in the garden by the ETC

Come out to the garden tomorrow if you're in town and willing to bear the heat.

This last week we were able to get all the compost and make some messy looking beds. Tomorrow we are going to straighten them up and plant the rest of our starts. We will also work on the drip system to make sure it's ready to keep all of our delicious fruits and veggies watered.

Bring your sun hat, sunscreen, a snack and water. We'll bring the tools. :)

the wisdom of the snail —Slow Food’s symbol
The snail was chosen because it moves slowly and calmly eats its way through life. The snail not only teaches us the virtue of slowness, but its small, unassuming size reminds us that even one individual, at a grassroots level can yield tremendous power.
