Each year, Slow Food chapters around the country hold free annual meetings and invite their communities to join them for for a little cheer and good company (over food, of course). This time also provides a chance for us to share what we work on throughout the year, and celebrate the community’s Slow Food milestones to date. We’re so excited to once again be partnering with the Ann Arbor Backyard Beekeepers for our annual meeting, which means you get to learn about our efforts, but also about A2B2 – a two-for-one!
Here’s a sneak preview of the schedule:
- 6:00 – Potluck dinner – please bring a dish to pass (bonus points for dishes that highlight honey and/or Ark of Taste ingredients!), along with your own dishware and non-alcoholic beverages
- 7:00 – Presentations by Eileen Dickinson of the Bee City Project on bee-safe neighborhoods and by Erica Kempter of Slow Food/Nature and Nurture Landscaping and Seeds on edible bee-pollinated foods in the Ark of Taste and/or permaculture categories. There will also be an announcement from Kim Bayer about Slow Food Huron Valley’s new mini-grant program.
After, we’ll all be available to chat and answer questions! It’s a great opportunity to meet local community members and learn more about your local Slow Food chapter and A2B2. Again, please bring a dish to pass along with your own dishware and non-alcoholic beverages. Matthaei Botanical Gardens is providing the space but visitors must pay for parking until 8pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
