Slow Food Tour to Rural Poland

Summer 2010

We have a fantastic occasion to spend five and a half days in rural Poland this summer at the Invitation of the International Centre for the Protection of Polish Countryside (ICPPC).

Please have a look at the Programme, especially designed for us, it is very “slow food”. To say a few words about the host, ICPPC is the environmental “Nobel Prize” winner “for fighting for the survival of family farms in Poland” (2002). The Goldman Environmental Prize is given annually to grassroots environmental heroes and includes a no-strings-attached award of $125,000. As the largest award of its kind, it has been called the "Nobel Prize for the Environment”.

So, you can go and see it for yourselves: family farmhouses, cheese making, preserving, cow milking and also meet with Polish Slow Food members.

In order for our friends at ICPPC to organise the tour properly, we need to reach a decision on the date and numbers by end of March, latest.
