Baton Rouge Sierra Club General Meeting
"Ultimately, I believe that slowness is an act of resistance, not because slowness is a good in itself but because of all that it makes room for, the things that don't get measured and can't be bought." - Rebecca Solnit
Bryan Alexander visits the Sierra Club's Baton Rouge Group on Thursday, June 26th to give a presentation on Slow Food USA’s mission to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system. Through its Baton Rouge chapter, Slow Food USA seeks to reconnect Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. It also works to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that those ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat. Bryan will put forth S.F.B.R.'s pursuit of these goals through educational outreach and in the local schools and in the wider community. Some of their projects include Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge model Farm To School program, The Crop Circle Learning Farm, Cooking Matters for Families is a national nutrition and cooking skills curriculum, and the Urban Agriculture Workshop Series held at the Burden Center.
