Slow Food USA is doing a membership drive so if you’ve been slow to join Slow (or to renew your commitment), now is the time! In addition to the beautiful international quarterly Slow magazine, the USA newsletter/magazine, and discounts for events, you’ll also receive your very own snail pin that you can proudly wear! New membership and renewals can be arranged via the Slow Food USA web site.
One more interesting news item: Patrick Martins, founding president of Slow Food USA, has started a new company, Heritage Foods, in order to create a market for and awareness of many of the Ark foods. Check out his e-newsletter and learn more about the mission and products of this new venture.
