Today a few members from Slow Food Waitakere met at the local Oratia Farmers Market to celebrate Terra Madre. We raised the Terra Madre and Slow Food flags at the stall or Terra Madre delegates Terry and Karlene Shaw-Toomey (Earthbound Honey) and talked about ideas for the next TM meeting next year, and projects for our convivium.
We choose the local farmers market because Terra Madre celebrations are about eating good, clean and fair local food, and to support our local producers. Participants received a small eco wooden dinner set and moved on to buy and eat food from the market.
Our sister convivium Slow Food Te Hiku had an impressive kai (feed) of local food, including lots of kaimoana (seafood). Ka rawe Te Hiku, nga mihi nui ki a koutou mo tenei Ra Terra Madre!
