Slow Food News:

A Kitchen Garden in Every Home

Spring relaunch of major Cittaslow / Slow Food project

Cittaslow Katoomba Blue Mountains and Slow Food Blue Mountains major project A KITCHEN GARDEN IN EVERY BLUE MOUNTAINS' HOME will be re-launched for the Spring/Summer season.
In partnership with Oasis Horticulture Winmalee and involving nurseries in the Blue Mountains, this project addresses:
• climate change
• food security
• food miles
• water efficiency
- and aims for every family to grow at least some of their food at home.

The project consists of discounted seedlings available from local nurseries and a relaunch feature in the Blue Mountains Gazette - containing a coupon redeemable at local nurseries. A planting guide will be reproduced in the feature and is also available on Cittaslow's website at www.cittaslow.org.au.

As the feature contains lots of useful information, it is a resource to keep - giving local businesses an excellent opportunity to advertise their products and services while receiving maximum exposure for their dollar.

Start your very own Kitchen Garden today!
