Slow Food: Local Impact, Global Connection

Galloway, N.J. – Jeff Quattrone, Library Seed Bank founder and Slow Food International member, will share his experiences and describe how anyone can join the movement for good, clean, fair food from 1-2 p.m. Aug. 14 at Stockton Kramer Hall, 30 Front St., in Hammonton.

Quattrone will also discuss preserving local food diversity through seed saving. With the establishment of Liberty Seed Bank, Quattrone brought the concept of seed libraries to the southern New Jersey area.

Seed libraries are collections of heirloom and open-pollinated seeds that are housed at public libraries. Professionals and/or the public can purchase seeds – depending on the library’s policies – and it is requested that seeds be returned from the plants that are grown.

Slow Food International is an organization dedicated to changing how humans produce, consume, and enjoy food through grassroots organizing, campaigning, and partnerships.

This event is a part of SCOSA’s “Second Wednesdays” program. Register by calling 609-626-3837.
