Since its launch in 2009, Slow Food Bali has put aside funds for education programs. We have a number of small grants which will be made available to members to encourage the Slow Food philosophy in their communities.
This is a chance to contribute to the Slow Food movement, raise awareness of sustainable food production in Bali and educate our membership.
Some examples of micro-projects might be:
- Document a unique Bali food or culinary tradition
- Create a directory of foods such as local fruits or heritage rice
- Set up a community garden
- Plan educational events such as field trips
- Small research projects
- Other creative ways of strengthening the Slow Food philosophy
- Members can either manage the project themselves or work with a local community member.

Here are two of my favorite preparations.

Hello Jero, Thanks for your interest in this event. We had such a positive response, that we will run it again in a couple of months, with additional recipes. Best wishes! Slow Food Bali— Mary Jane Edleson on Moringa Oleifera – Power Tree, Super Food

Hi Mary, I would be interested in helping to organize a forest honey event through our bee project Ratu Lestari Alami.— Kelly on Why Wild Forest Honey?
Thanks, Meg! Maybe you would like to work with us, and help organize another event like this!!?? It would be fun! We have the good contacts, and just need to arrange a venue & date. The last event was fully subscribed, and everyone really enjoyed, especially the comparative "tasting".— Mary Jane Edleson on Why Wild Forest Honey?
DO you have another event like this happening this year (2016)? I would love to learn more and support local, wild honey - and purchase some to benefit these communities and conservation <3— Meg on Why Wild Forest Honey?
