A new category of membership of the Slow Food movement is being made available through local group, Slow Food Dorset and members will be at the Stock Gaylard Oak Fair, at Stock Gaylard near Sturminster Newton on Saturday, 25th August to talk to anyone interested in finding out more about Slow Food, both locally and internationally.
“Producers, caterers and other food related businesses can now join the movement as a sponsor for an annual fee of £100 and we hope to meet possible new members at the Oak Fair which is a unique event on the calendar in Dorset. Slow Food is all about protecting diversity and preserving heritage and we feel that the Oak Fair is a perfect example of this with a whole range of wood related skills and crafts, local food and drink, local organisations and a huge crowd of people who appreciate this type of rural event. Slow Food Dorset celebrates local distinctiveness and this seems a perfect place to talk to like-minded people,” said John Peace, leader of Slow Food Dorset.
Slow Food Dorset always welcomes new members of all ages and from all over Dorset and the surrounding area. Details of all membership, individual, family or youth, can be found at www.slowfooddorset.org.uk
An annual programme of events is organised by Slow Food Dorset and each one is chosen to reflect and uphold the principles of the international Slow Food movement – to celebrate and promote food which is Good, Clean and Fair. In other words, it should taste good, should not harm the environment, animal welfare or human health, and producers should be fairly compensated.
