Welcome back for a semester of Slow Food URI fun! To get your mind thinking about the Spring Season, we want to tell you about our dream this semester. By the time URI celebrates Earth Day on April 21st, we want to have a truck farm. What is a truck farm?... It’s a garden, in the back of a truck! Slow Food URI has been asked to join in with a coalition of Farmers, the movement is called Truck Farming. The trucks are used for educating young children, families, and consumers about where their food comes from. We want to have our very own Slow Food URI truck, so if you have any ideas…EMAIL US! We would love to hear from you. Also, visit the truck farming link to get more information.
On another note, we want everyone to know we will be meeting at the coffee shop in the Memorial Union every other Thursday starting February 10, 2011 at 5:00pm. We also bring some free local food for everyone to enjoy and we will try to post the recipes on here.
