Slow Food Saddleback News

Start of Year Picnic

Slow Food Saddleback is starting our 2021 activites with a Covid- friendly outdoor event.

Our annual picnic will be held at Des and Celia’s farm in Jamberoo at the end of the month. It’s a casual and relaxed day sharing home grown produce and food skills with old and new friends.

For this bring and share meal you are asked to bring a dish featuring something you have grown or sourced locally, or to prepare your favourite recipe. The BBQ will be available. On arrival you will be greeted with a glass of bubbly and a snack from the barbie. If the weather is unkind, there is plenty of cover available.

Members are welcome to bring non-members and children are always welcome. Bookings are essential and numbers are limited by NSW Health Covid restrictions, so please book early. All proceeds from the day will be donated to Slow Food International to further their efforts worldwide.

Our special guest will be Tricia Ashelford, Kiama’s  Citizen of the Year. Tricia will tell us about the history and workings of the Kiama and Berry Farmers Markets and the initiatives that kept the markets open despite Covid restrictions.
