Slow Food Hunter Valley members are part of a large international, national and local network of people who are continually striving to improve our food systems and negate the impact of food industrialisation. Our local convivium has over 50 members with a large list of “friends/volunteers” who also assist with projects, attend meetings and receive communications (by registering for our mailing list).
- Our members are committed to:
- saving food cultures
- maintaining biodiversity
- improving our food system to ensure a more equitable distribution of food
- reducing food waste
- and, at the same time, enjoying the pleasures of good, clean and fair food.
To become a member of the Slow Food Hunter Valley convivium we recommend you join through Slow Food International website (this is the most streamlined process). You will be asked to select the length of membership, complete a form and then asked to select your convivium. Please select NSW – Hunter Valley Convivium from the drop-down list.
Slow Food International makes us aware of new members at month’s-end. Therefore, if you join early in the month it can be some time before we are made aware of your new membership. We would like to make sure you are not missing out on opportunities in the interim. Therefore, feel free to drop our Membership Officer, Ruth Adams, an email at email@example.com so she can add you to our email distribution list immediately.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to deal with our local Membership Officer, please call Ruth on 0402 264 395 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a member you will be asked to do as little or as much as you feel comfortable doing. You will meet people, have the opportunity to participate in projects and, through your volunter work, you will make a difference. But above all else, you will have fun!
