Ark of Taste

Ark Trunk and Grow Out


The Ark of Taste is a list of endangered foods and food traditions that are selected by Slow Food around the world to be documented, preserved, and defended. To bring these foods to life, we have created an Ark Trunk, a traveling exhibit of products selected to the USA’s Ark of Taste. And, our annual “grow out” of 30 Ark vegetable varieties best suited for our county’s growing conditions distributes seeds to local growers who volunteer to promote their use and their history in our local food communities.
