Celebrate Eating Locally

Preparations are underway for the worldwide celebration of Slow Food’s 20th anniversary and ‘Eating Locally’ on Terra Madre Day this December 10. With just over a month until the big day, people from all corners of the world are planning a wide range of actitivites and events which will be as diverse and unique as the communities holding them - from a shared dinner under an elephant at the Tolouse Natural history museum in France, to a community folk festival in Bangladesh, and a fish canning party in the USA.

In Africa, the Slow Food Mukono convivium in Uganda is bringing together their members with school children, producers, consumers, teachers, parents, and local leaders, for a huge Eat-In - a shared meal of dishes made from local ingredients to represent the nation’s different food traditions. In Kenya, the Nyanza convivium is establishing a garden for indigenous crops and seed saving while the Central Rift convivium is linking artisan chefs with artisan farmers. In Cuba, the Las Terrazas food community is running a full-day program: planting of food trees with children from a local pre-school, a lunch for local farmers prepared by students from the “Cocina Ecologica” association, a community tasting of local juices and foods and a film screening. Meanwhile, in Australia Slow Food Sunshine Coast is inviting everyone to follow the 'Snail Trail' through the region, where they will be able to sample local ingredients and meet producers, as well as attend several Eat-Ins in parks.

If you would like to join this global celebration, the Terra Madre Day website can help you get going. Download the Information for Organizers guide for a full overview, event ideas, tips on promoting your activities, FAQs and more. In addition, there are range of graphic materials and designs available here, including the Terra Madre Day logo and world map, posters, banners, postcards, pins etc. The postcard and poster are provided in both pdf and word formats – with a space in the word version where you can easily add your own text. The site and all of these documents are available in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Russian.

As soon as you have an outline of your Terra Madre Day activity, please register it on the site, using the online form which asks for details of the coordinator, the event name, date and location and a brief description of what you are planning. Each registered event will be added to our world map.
