We so much appreciate that almost 150 of you that responded to our early summer survey on Activities of interest for a local Slow Food Chapter. We've been taking some time to mull over the potential activities and focus of our chapter.
Interest in ALL types of activities were similarly high, so we have
decided to try to hold our own (and partner with) a variety of activities to meet the needs of all those interested.
We now have a series of interesting activities organized for the fall. We are sharing these with you in this newsletter, and hope it encourages you to get involved, to join our Slow food chapter, or to come and learn more at the events.
We have already had tables at the Sustainable Living Fair and
Collaborative Conservation Conference, where we interacted with many of you.
Our next event will be held on Sunday afternoon October 11th at Cresset Farm (see below). Join us for good food, fun and good friendship!
A great way to start our convivium.
(Note: Convivium is Slow Food's term for a local chapter. It comes from the same root as convivial which means, literaly to "live with".) Also, please consider showing support for the Farm to School movement, an international initiative by Slow Food this year. See the petition at: http://www.slowfoodusa.org

Join Slow Food's newest chapter around a pot steaming in the cool autumn air at Cresset Farm overlooking the Big Thompson River. Pumpkin and Crème Fraiche Soup; Grass-fed Beef Oxtail and Root Vegetables; Baked Apple and Lemon Verbena infusion are some of the treats we are planning to prepare all together with the heirloom vegetables grown from seed selected and grown by Lawrence Holmes.
Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.
