The Slow Food Cycle Sunday Story

SFCS Header

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.

Slow FoodThis event was inspired by the principles of Slow Food, an organization that Anna 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. 2014 marks the first year the Slow Food Cycle is an official event of Tourism Pemberton.
