SLOW Food’s local branches, known as convivia, are at the heart of all that we do. According to inclination and imagination, a local convivium organises events ranging from simple shared meals and tastings to visits to local producers and farms, from conferences and discussions, film screenings and festivals, to taste education courses for children and adults, promotion of farmers’ markets and support for local and international food awareness campaigns.
As a member, you can join us to share the everyday joys of food, learn about local foods and producers, and spread this knowledge. From Noosa in Queensland to Pemberton in Western Australia, from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Hobart in Tasmania, in all capital cities and throughout Australia’s vast bush heartland, all of our activities are co-ordinated by volunteers.
Our events range from a ‘blind’ tasting of white milks for a handful of kids in Mundaring, Western Australia, to Barossa Slow, a celebration of the Barossa Valley’s food heritage in South Australia. Local convivia organise events throughout the year, from learning to make sausages at Daylesford in central Victoria and vinocotto in an Australian Capital Territory vineyard, to a film screening about Slow Food praesidia in Maleny, Queensland, and a beach crab dinner in Darwin in the Northern Territory.
