  1. Slow Food Cornwall

    Quote:
    What is Slow Food?

    Slow Food Cornwall is run by passionate volunteers as part of an International Movement to protect ‘Good, Clean and Fair’ food for all.

    The Slow Food movement began in 1986 after Carlo Petrini, an Italian journalist, saw a new branch of McDonalds at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome. He thought it essential to set up a ‘slow food’ movement to counter the global takeover of ‘fast food’, and to protect regional and/or traditional food and drink.

    Since the 1980s, Slow Food has become an international organisation with 83,000 members worldwide, which not only promotes food and wine culture, but also defends food and agricultural biodiversity worldwide.

    The network of Slow Food members is organised into local grassroot groups—Condotte in Italy and Convivia elsewhere in the world—which organise campaigns, courses, dinners, tastings, visits, education etc.

  2. Cornish Diet Campaign

    The North Cornwall branch of Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall launched the Cornish Diet Campaign at the Camelford Show on Wednesday 12th August.
    As a part of a ‘Living Communities’ theme, the Cornish Diet calls for 80% of all food served on Cornwall Council owned or run premises to come from Cornwall by 2012. This would include a clear long-term development path so that growers and producers can find and access potential future markets in the public sector.

      Thanks for that. Transition groups in Cornwall have also been discussing this for some time. Transition Truro have an event this very evening about a Cornwall Diet – see calendar

  4. Garden Share

    I’m not sure if I’m posting in the right area but would like to find out if I can offer my gardens as a garden share. I’m unable to look after the gardens as they should be looked after and really need some help, I have fruit trees in the rear garden which is big enough for growing vedge, in fact years ago it was used for vedge growing from potatoes to herbs.
    I can no longer physically do anything in the gardens and theyr becoming overgrown now.

      Hi, I’ve moved your post to the Food forum as Garden Share is certainly something both Transition Truro and Transition Falmouth are keen to promote.

      I recommend joining the TTdiscuss email group as there is plenty of discussion of Community Allotments/Garden share on it – see Contact Page

      Transition Falmouth is also in the early stages of setting up a formalised Garden Share project in partnership with other organisations. Personally, I’ve also had my garden on offer for garden share with other LETS members on Falmouth LETS – due for re-launch soon.

      All the best,

      Rob (TT web admin)

        We have Transition Truro Food Group meeting this evening – I will take this along with me for discussion.

          Hi Cadgaboo

          I’d be happy to help out in your garden before it officially becomes a Garden Share. I live in a flat in Truro so would love the chance to help someone else in their garden and maybe try my hand at growing a few vegetables.
