Celebrate 2014 Slow Food Cycle Sunday!
Sunday, August 17, 2014
8:00 am to 3:00 pm
Slow Food Cycle Sunday is an opportunity to connect — town folk and city folk, consumers with their food, people with the land. The future of food is local!
A celebration of food, farmers, and the joys of biking, Slow Food Cycle Sunday blows the fast-food drive-through away. It is a pedal-powered trip through the natural buffet that is Pemberton Meadows farmland to meet local growers and sample produce fresh from the field.
The World Watch Institute reports that the average food item eaten in North America has traveled 2,500 to 4,000 km from farm to table. Here, the distance between good food and your table is as short as a 50 kilometre / 31 mile bike ride.
NOTE: This year's Slow Food Cycle Sunday will include a registration fee:
$5 per person or a maximum of $20 per family.
