Eating Slow this September

Gathering around a table and sharing the pleasures of food grown on a farm is one of life's greatest creature comforts, and a pillar of the Slow Food community. We are happy to share the invitation to two community potluck events this September, below, and encourage you to join in celebrating Midlands-grown ingredients this fall with your neighbors! 

The Midlands Food Alliance is hosting a Lexington County Potluck at
Greener Acres Farm at 1390 Bub Shumpert Rd. in Pelion on Sunday
September 13th from 3-5pm and a Richland County Potluck at DOKO Farm
at 2101 Cedar Creek Road in Blythewood on Sunday, September 27th from
3-5pm. Join other farmers and eaters who support local food for a time
of meal sharing and fellowship. The mission of the Midlands Food
Alliance is to Advocate & Educate for a Sustainable & Equitable,
Localized Food System in the Midlands of South Carolina. The purpose
of the potlucks are to build relationships with others in your
community who also support local food production. Please bring your
plate and utensils (there will be a space to wash them at meal's end),
 a dish to share with serving utensil, and name-card of the dish and
its ingredients. Please RSVP to 803-360-3358 or
