Slow Food Tulsa hosts Harvest Festival Fundraiser

Slow Food Tulsa hosts Harvest Festival Fundraiser

Slow Food Tulsa, the local chapter of the international non-profit organization Slow Food, will host a Harvest Festival Fundraiser on Sunday, September 26th, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Harwelden Mansion.

Attendees will enjoy a cooking demonstration by Richard Clark of The French Hen, followed by a reception featuring local food and wines. Chefs from some of Tulsa’s finest restaurants will prepare hors d’oeuvres highlighting products from our local farmers.

$20 donation is requested for attendance, and reservations can be made by contacting 645-7987,

Proceeds will be used to assist our local Terra Madre delegates with travel expenses to the international Terra Madre conference in Italy. The Terra Madre conference will be a forum for those who seek to grow, raise, create, distribute and promote food in ways that respect the environment while protecting the health of consumers.

Participants will exchange ideas and solutions about how to promote a healthy, dynamic and diverse food system. Our local delegates are Pam Harris of Cabin Creek Winery, and Neva Alsip of Country Garden Farms.
