Theme: Eating Where We Live
The Slow Food in Canada 2018 National Summit will be hosted by Slow Food Saskatoon in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan April 19-22, 2018.
Saskatoon has been a gathering place for Indigenous peoples of the Northern Plains for 6,000 years. It is Treaty Six Territory, and the Homeland of the Métis. Since the city was founded, it has been a hub for Canada’s bread (and canola, bean, pea and lentil) basket. It is home to diverse peoples from all over the world.
In the past decade, Saskatoon has garnered attention, most recently from the New York Times, as an up-and-coming city with regards to food and culture. Slow Food Saskatoon is excited to share with you the foundations of our Indigenous food systems, the research and development that has gone into creating fruit, vegetables and grains that thrive in our challenging climate, and the diversity offered by historic and recent newcomers. More details to come soon!
