Save the Date – Slow Food O’ahu Annual Meeting – FREE
January 15, 2017 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Please join us for our Annual Meeting to re-cap the events of 2016 and begin 2017. As is our tradition, we gather for a wonderful potluck lunch on Sunday in January (this year on January 15) for an opportunity to share food, food policy, and plan for 2017. Slow Food member events are known for some of the BEST potlucks of locally sourced food. In addition to the food we will have a recap of events, and hear from our delegates to Terra Madre, Nat Bletter, Martha Cheng, and Charley Reppun. Nat is our Slow Food O’ahu leader for our foraging events as well as the co-founder of Madre Chocolate. Martha Cheng is an active food writer in Honolulu. You may have recognized her byline as the food editor for Honolulu Magazine and the Honolulu Weekly, or seen her name on articles for Conde Naste Traveler, Eater, and Frommer’s guidebooks. Charley & Vivien Reppun are the hosts for meeting. They with Charley’s brother, Paul, have been farming since 1974. Taro, grown under wetland conditions on ancient restored lo’i, has always been their main crop. Because of the varied topography of their land, they also grow many other edible plants and fruit bearing trees, like sweet potato and breadfruit. After the meal, we will have an opportunity to see the farm.
The meeting will be held at the Waianu Farm (home of Charley and Vivien Reppun) in Waiahole Valley. Directions and parking instructions will be sent out before the meeting. Parking is limited and attendees will be enco uraged to carpool.
