January 27, 2014Organic Seed Alliance
Our Slow Food Bali Convivium Leader is heading to the 7th Organic Seed Alliance Conference!
The biennial Organic Seed Growers Conference brings together hundreds of farmers, plant breeders, researchers, university extension, certifiers, food companies, seed production and distribution companies, and other organic stakeholders in two days of presentations, panel discussions, and networking events. The agenda is packed and includes 70 experts in the fields of organic plant breeding, seed research, enterprise development, seed economics, policy, and more.
Can’t wait to see what we can put into practice in Indonesia and Bali. It is a long-held dream of Slow Food Bali to help set up the first Indonesian Seed Bank, so we hope this is the first step towards realizing that goal!
October 10, 2013Ubud Writers and Readers Festival
Every year the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF) brings amazing people to Ubud and Bali to speak on issues ranging from literary, to musical, political, environmental, and even culinary. The lineup this year for us Slow Foodies is impressive. Not only are some of the biggest champions of Indonesian culinary traditions (William Wongso, Farah Quinn) appearing, but so are international experts like Stephen Lansing. Stephen is an authority on the subak (ricefield irrigation) system of Bali and will be speaking at several sessions during the festival. The full list of his appearances can be found here on the UWRF website.
The Taman Baca space will also have a Kitchen this year, with cooking demonstrations, tastings and talks from incredible resource people. Slow Foodies, rejoice!
