The inaugural Slow Food Nations was held in Denver July 14-16. It was a wonderful event that brought a wide range of growers, food purveyors, educators, chefs and food enthusiasts to downtown Denver. The food culture of Denver has exploded over the last decade and with the vibrant downtown scene, it was a great venue. I was invited to host a “pop up” pollinator gathering so I brought a short work in progress “trailer” for The Pollinators and screened it for enthusiastic audiences at Union Station. We got a great response and it was a terrific opportunity to meet some great folks whose common interest is good food, grown in a responsible way. The Slow Food manifesto is “Good, Clean and Fair” food. The event was a huge success and served as a foundation for an annual gathering. They are already making plans for 2018 and are interested in The Pollinators taking part in that. Stay tuned.
