If we want to grow food without depleting the Earth’s resources and creating unacceptable suffering then we must undo the devasting bonds between monocultures, soil exploitation and intensive farming.
Slow Food has been working on the relationship between humans, animals and the Earth for a long time: from the wild to the domesticated spheres, the links between food and health (includning the health of animals and the planet), involving farmers, herders, cheesemakers, butchers, vets, institutions, technicians, cooks and concerned citizens.
The Slow Farming campaign supports those who raise animals with respect, that take care of the soil, the biodiversity of the pastures and the landscape: Respect is the key work for all of us, as we must restore the right value, and the right price to products of animal origin, reducing our consumption and avoiding waste.
The Slow Food position paper on farming will be presented at the meeting.
