Groceries in your backyard

Michele Owens, of Saratoga Springs and Salem, NY, has published a new book on gardening: “Grow the Good Life: Why a Vegetable Garden Will Make you Happy, Healthy, and Wise.”

Anybody committed to culinary creativity, environmental consciousness, and cutting down on trips to the supermarket should keep reading.

In her book, Owens describes the rewards, ease, pleasure, and sensibility of growing your own vegetables in your backyard. She argues that it should be a normal part of any household—and that it’s easy to start.

Interested? See her speak on April 21st at Brown’s Brewing Company!

What is Slow Food

Supporting Ethical Food

Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

Our Vision

Food is a common language and has the power to bring people together. Slow Food Saratoga not only envisions a world in which all people have food that is good for them and the planet, but also aims to unite our community through the local food and growers that sustain us.
