Free event

Slow Grains is a network of producers from all over the world who recover traditional grains or old local varieties by growing and processing them.

People who process flour to make bread, pasta and baked goods. Farmers who guard the seeds, grow their grains sustainably, produce their flours by stone-grinding… The rediscovery of traditional cereals is not only an effective tool to defend biodiversity: it is also an opportunity for many small local communities and consumers alike to support these supply chains thanks to their food choices. Get to know traditional grains and their guardians.
