We're proud that our board member, Eric McClam, Farm Manager at City Roots, has been selected as a delegate to Terra Madre, the big Slow Food International event in Turin, Italy.

Happily, thanks to City Roots farm, American Harvest and The Southern Greenie, proceeds from this event, below, will go toward his airfare to Italy! Slow Food chapters traditionally chip in to send their delegates to this prestigious event.
