We are delighted to have been selected as delegates for this year’s Slow Food Terra Madre gathering in Turin, Italy.

Terra Madre is an international gathering of more than 5,000 people, including “food communities, cooks, academics, youth and musicians, who are united in a desire to promote sustainable local food production in harmony with the environment while respecting knowledge handed down over the generations.”

Now we just need to raise the funds to get us there. To this end, we will be having a benefit dinner this July 31 in Eugene, OR, from 6pm to 9 pm.

We will begin the eventing with a slide show presentation about the importance of local and international seed networks, and what we hope to bring back from Terra Madre.

A five course meal will follow at 7pm, prepared by local chef Tiffany Norton of Party Cart. The meal will feature many ingredients grown on our farm, Open Oak Farm.

There will also be live music and a silent auction, with good local seedy and foodie stuff.

Please join us! There will be lots of pretty pictures, delicious food, and good company.

The cost is $50 per plate ($25 is tax-deductible).

RSVP by July 25 to seedambassadors(at)gmail.com
