Annual start of year picnic in Bonaira

Welcome to 2020 with Slow Food Saddleback.

Our annual start of year picnic will be held in the Bonaira Native Garden in Kiama on Sunday 9 February. The picnic area is a short walk  from the parking area behind the AFL and Bridge Club buildings in Girrawheen Avenue.

There are  picnic tables  and plenty of shade but there are no barbecues, so cold treats are the order of the day and you need to bring your own chairs or picnic rug. 

If the weather isn’t picnic style we’ll decamp to a member’s home  at the other end of the reserve.

This is a great opportunity for  people who have joined our group recently  or are interested in the Slow Food philosophy to get to meet our longer-term members and understand more about Slow Food.  And, if you haven’t yet discovered the Bonaira bushland reserve, a chance to explore this delightful quiet space in the heart of the town. 

Food Style – This is a Bring and Share event to get people together to meet and chat and get input for our activities in 2020.

So that we don’t end up with too many very similar dishes, Carolyn has offered to be a co-ordination point. She can be reached at

We do hope to see you there for this relaxed and fun day. Money from this picnic will be donated to a Slow Food cause in our area.
