Welcome to Astrid Panizza, Our Intern!
Astrid is here! Our Slow Food intern, Astrid Panizza, is a master’s student in the Local Development Program of the University of Padua, Italy. She is here through June to research the Bodega Red Potato and Gravenstein Apple for her master’s thesis. She has already helped to plant Bodega Reds for our chapter garden, and has begun to interview farmers who are growing the potatoes. She will work with the Gravenstein Apple Presidium in West County as well.
Sonoma County North was founded in 1997, the first of five Slow Food chapters in Sonoma County. We believe that food is a common language and universal right, and envision a world in which all people can eat food that is good: for them, for the people who grow it, and for the planet.
Our mission is to reconnect those in our community with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils, and waters that produce our food. We work to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices, and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability, and pleasure in the food we eat.
