Terra Madre- October 21-25

Buon viaggio, Margaret!

This year, Margaret, the blonder half of Beta Verde, has been selected as a Terra Madre delegate and will be in Torino this week representing our region. She packed light so that she can bring back knowledge and treats from all over the world.

Terra Madre is an international network of food communities that are committed to global sustainability in food. On a biannual basis, Slow Food hosts the Terra Madre conference in Torino, Italy to share innovative solutions and time-honored traditions for keeping small-scale agriculture and sustainable food production alive and well. Thousands of producers, chefs, educators and musicians gather for four days to meet, eat and put their minds together.

We can't wait to hear more about it when she returns! Although it'll be even better if she brings us a little bit of this!
