Mushroom Inoculation and Potluck at Handance Farm

Last year’s mushroom inoculation and potluck was one of the most pleasant, relaxing days that I spent last spring. And a Slow Food potluck is not to be missed if you like to eat real food.

Slow Food Film Series: “Barbecue is a Noun”
Meet-up, 7:00 p.m., movie starts at 8:00 p.m.
The Green Bean, 341 S. Elm St., Greensboro, NC

Barbecue is a Noun is the story of some very peculiar men who make a particular kind of barbecue. Their stories unfold in the small towns, strip malls, farms and backyards of North and South Carolina, conjuring insights into fading traditions andrising ambitions. Eccentric, dedicated, and patient to a fault, these men struggle against modernity and uncertain futures as the film unfolds.

Slow Food Film Series: “Fast Food Nation”
Meet-up, 7:00 p.m., movie starts at 8:00 p.m.
The Green Bean, 341 S. Elm St., Greensboro, NC

Inspired by the incendiary bestseller that exposed the hidden facts behind America’s fast food industry, Richard Linklater’s Fast Food Nation traces the birth of an everyday, ordinary burger through a chain of riveting, interlocked human stories. As the film traverses from pristine barbeque smoke labs to the volatile U.S.-Mexican border, it unveils a provocative portrait of all the yearning, ambition, corruption and hope that lies inside what America is biting into.

For both films:

Come early to meet other Slow Foodies and socialize at 7 p.m. Stay after the movie for discussion of the film!

The movie is free but a donation to Slow Food is encouraged. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.
