Movment started on winter 2007 by Julio Guajardo and Alan shepard trying to get people together and learn about living organic , for our own benefit and of course to try to preserve the planet for future generations.
Buy locally-grown food and/or organic food that is healthier for consumers and for the environment. Independent farmers are under a lot of pressure from big corporate farms that have taken over the industry.
Whether standing at a barbecue, kneeling on a talami mat or seated at an elegant restaurant, eating is fundamental to living. Elevating the quality of our food and taking time to enjoy it is a simple way to infuse our daily lives with joy.
''It is useless to force the rythms of life. The art of living is about learning how to give time to each and every thing ''
founder of Slow Food.
Slow food is the key to healthy living and also to great changes that are increasingly necessary in our lives. The simple act of making more things yourself out of ingredients that you know have been treated well and grown in a natural environment free of pesticides, antibiotics, and other additives will make you a healthier person. I think that the movement of organic foods and slow food is growing more every day because people are beginning to realize the negative impact industrial farming and processed foods are having on not only our environment but also on our own health.
