An announcement from Sharon Clarke at Slow Food Finger Lakes:
The Slow Food Finger Lakes chapter is again open for action!
I've been in contact with the Slow Food USA folks and with Ed Yowell the Northeast contact who are both eager to see the Finger Lakes chapter revived and succeed. Over the next few months I'll be planning various activities ranging from farm tours and cider tastings to gleanings or Crop Mob invitations around the region. Not every event will appeal to everyone interested in Slow Food but hopefully there will be enough interest in most of them to begin congregating a broad-based membership. If you have ideas for things for us to do, places for us to visit, please contact me.
Although, I'm taking on the mission of reviving the chapter to thrive and last it must become a share venture. If you are interested in sharing the organizing and planning duties for your area please let me know. I'm based near Ithaca, but because we are going to wander the region more help is welcome.
If you are receiving this it is because you have expressed an interest getting involved OR you were recommended by someone who is getting involved. Email will be sparse (unless you contact me, of course!). If you don't want to receive any notices from me by email please let me know and I'll immediately remove you from the group list I use. If you know someone who might like to become involved please ask them to contact me at this email address.
Now, for a few 'Getting Started' details. Here is a basic outline of what SF FLX will be striving for.
