The Slow Food Cycle Sunday Story
Photo by Dave Steers
Slow Food Cycle Sunday was founded in 2005. It was started by Anna Helmer and Lisa Richardson, two Pemberton residents concerned that irreplaceable farmland is under constant development pressures. The bike ride is a way to inform people of the importance of farmland, to give townspeople an opportunity to spend the day in the country and to give farmers and consumers a chance to connect.
This event was inspired by the principles of Slow Food, an organization that Anna Helmer is actively involved with. Slow Food is a global, grassroots association with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. 2015 marked the first year the Slow Food Cycle was officially produced by Tourism Pemberton.
