Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is organized by Slow Food, the City of Turin and the Piedmont Region. Join us in Parco Dora, Turin, from Thursday, September 26 to Monday, September 30, 2024, and explore how food can restore our relationship with nature. #TerraMadre2024

The beauty of Terra Madre

Terra Madre returns to Parco Dora, a powerful symbol of urban regeneration in the northern outskirts of Turin. The location itself contains a powerful message about our ability to rediscover our place in nature, to give nature the opportunity to express itself again. Check out the photo gallery of the 2022 edition.

🍇#SlowWineFair2024 is here: reflections on the future of viticulture and agriculture, tastings, and the joy of our winemaking friends make this event more special every year.

🍷But above all, we remind ourselves how hard the members of the Slow Wine Coalition work all year round for ...the good of the soil ecosystem, without which there'd be no wine at all. It's a collective effort for better agriculture, better wine, and a better world.

See you tomorrow!

Terra Madre Indígena 2024 - Pueblos de Abya Yala will take place from March 6-10 in México City 🇲🇽

👉 https://www.slowfood.com/events/indigenous-terra-madre-abya-yala-peoples/

🌾 A hundred activists from the Slow Food Indigenous Peoples' Network will gather to ...celebrate the diversity of their food and cultures and the role they play in resisting the colonization of food systems.

🤲🏽 🌱 Indigenous peoples safeguard more than 80% of the world’s biodiversity. Food systems contribute, as protecting those plants and animals is essential to maintaining the balance of the ecosystems they live in, and food production depends on it.
🏭 However, multinationals challenge this balance as globalized and industrial foods become the norm on our tables. This not only homogenizes our taste but also threatens our freedom of choice and the planet. 🌎

☀️ But alternatives exist, and #TerraMadreIndígena2024 is the place to get to know, celebrate, and promote them.

We thank Fundación W.K. Kellogg, the Fondo Internacional de Desarrollo Agrícola (FIDA), Tamalpais Trust, and the Complejo Cultural los Pinos for helping us bring this event to life.

🌱 Unsustainable agricultural policies have trapped farmers in a market-driven model. Agribusiness prioritizes profits over sustainability, pressuring farmers to increase yield at all costs.

🍲 Food is treated as a commodity, and Common Agricultural Policy derogations harm ecosystems, ...worsening farmers' income issues.

🌍 The future of food systems relies on the well-being of the farming community, stewards of our vital common good: food.

🌿 The EU should contribute to create a vision for sustainable, local food systems, embracing ecological practices and preserving natural resources. We will.

🌐 We urge the EU to align CAP with the Green Deal, using the UN Declaration on Peasants' Rights as a guide.

🤝 Join us in a consensus-based transition, ensuring dignity and livelihoods for farmers and farm workers. All food system actors must contribute to realizing food sovereignty, organic agriculture, and peasant rights.

"We don't need to look beyond our borders for great food and rich biodiversity," says Aida Jamangulova, the Farmers to Chefs project coordinator.

In Kyrgyzstan, the Farmers to... Chefs project is empowering local farmers and chefs to embrace agroecology, reduce waste, and promote conscious consumption, by strengthening the bond between them.

👩‍🌾👨‍🍳👫 The Aly de Polya Bistro hosted training sessions focusing on agroecology, climate impact, and team-building. The project also welcomed Anton Kalenik from Belarus, sharing insights on incorporating local products into menus.

🍽️ The Brunch with Farmers was a pivotal step for farmers and chefs to meet and build direct relationships, to create a sustainable food supply system for local restaurants, emphasizing the importance of strong relationships.

🌍 The next steps include developing a virtual marketplace for farmers and producers, directly connecting them with HoReCa and consumers.

The project is made possible thanks to the support of the #SlowFoodNegroniFund by Imbibe and Campari

From February 2nd to 4th, the Regional Academy in Dakar brought together passionate educators and experts to delve into key themes like Agroecology, Biodiversity, and Indigenous Peoples' Rights.

The intensive three-day program, despite its packed schedule, unfolded seamlessly. ...Participants engaged in both in-person and online sessions, covering topics from Agroecological Gardens to the intricate aspects of project construction.

🤝 The warmth and commitment of all involved, along with the guidance from five dedicated tutors and trainers, fostered a sense of family among this diverse human biodiversity—representing 13 different countries, numerous indigenous identities, languages, and cultures—a true African Terra Madre!

🌍 Now, the journey continues with ongoing training, project proposal presentations from those present in Dakar, and the vital task of strengthening the Slow Food network within each participant's community.

🌟 Participants shared inspiring reflections:
🌾 "No doubts remain about the power of agroecology to preserve our community's food system."
🌳 "Visual learning reinforced my understanding of environmental preservation, especially for forest-rich countries like ours."
🗣️ "Confidence gained post-academy empowers me to spread the Slow Food message across various platforms."

🙌 Thanks to International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and TAMALPAIS TRUST for funding this initiative in collaboration with the SF Indigenous People Network. Let's amplify these impactful stories and initiatives!

In collaboration with REDES : Network for Ecovillage Emergence and Development in the Sahel
