Terra Madre

The "slow-food" movement continues to gain steam around the world as more and more people are concerned about sustainable agriculture, eating locally, and so on. Since 2004, the Terra Madre organization has held an international conference every two years, which brings together cooks, academics, and others who are interested in "increasing small-scale, traditional, and sustainable food production." On their website, visitors can learn about these meetings, learn about their ongoing projects, read their weblog, and read through the "Voices" section. The "Voices" section is worth singling out for special attention, as it offers up first-hand perspectives on the ways in which different individuals are participating in various innovative local food production techniques and networks. Most people will find the "Multimedia" section particularly entrancing. Here visitors can view events from the conference, including interviews, short films, and photo slideshows. One feature that shouldn't be missed is "The Edible Schoolyard", this short "how-to" film aims to inspire school children to make their own gardens at their schools, and there is also helpful information for teachers included in the film.
