Slow Food Conference 2017

Slow Food Hunter Valley will host this year’s Slow Food National Conference from 2 August to 6 August 2017 in and around Maitland. We invite you to take time out and immerse yourself in everything the Slow Food movement is about.

Enjoy Slow Food’s hospitality, make new friends, renew old friendships, experience the wine, the rural and farming communities, and the wonderful produce that the Hunter Valley has to offer. Get inspired and return home with lots of ideas on how you can make a difference in your own community and make ‘good, clean, and fair a reality for all Australians.

Conference topics include: Guerrilla Farmers; Bread, Bees and Honey; Slow Wine; Slow Fish and Slow Meat. Speakers include Bruce Pascoe (award winning writer, editor and anthologist) and Amorelle Dempster (Australian councillor for Slow Food), Darren Bayley (Principal of Tocal Agricultural college), Noel Jupp (horticulturalist), Francesco Sottile (Associate Professor at University of Palermo, Italy – representing the Foundation for Biodiversity). The official launch of the first Slow Food Earth Market (collaboration between Slow Food Hunter Valley and Maitland Council) will also happen during the conference.
