Posted by Len Gilbert on August 29, 2008

Looking for something LOCAL to do this weekend? Try a “staycation” and avoid the Friday afternoon and Monday return traffic by checking out the Slow Food Nation events this weekend in SF. Very BART and bike accessible, the description below gives you the basic idea, but there are so many events that you should take a look at the full schedule. Questions? see the FAQs.

The inaugural edition of Slow Food Nation will celebrate, explore, and educate about food that is delicious, ecologically sustainable and socially just. Held in San Franciso over the Labor weekend, it is expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors.

The event is designed to show how food and agriculture are interwoven with the larger issues of the environment, health, education, creating community, the global economy and long-term sustainability. It will include tastings, forums, workshops, films, exhibits, music and talks by such luminaries as Eric Schlosser, Marion Nestle, Michael Pollan, Wendell Berry, Alice Waters, Vandana Shiva, and Carlo Petrini, as well as hundreds of the most respected farmers and food artisans from across the country.
