About Us


1.  Support and promote our local farmers  and their products.

2.  Support the products and activities of those who are preserving (or inventing) local and regional traditions in the growing and preparation of food.

3.  Present educational programs and events that enhance member and community knowledge about sustainable farming and food production, biodiversity, food traditions, and  the benefits of eating food that is fresh, seasonal, and locally produced.

4.  Create events that take place at table to increase the sense of community among members of our convivium, members of fellow Sonoma County convivia, and members of the community.

5.  Engage in community projects and organizations that promote food justice and equity in bringing food from farm to table.

6.  Develop and broaden relationships and exchanges with others who share the guiding values of Slow Food.

7.  Develop or engage in projects that reach beyond Sonoma County to foster cultural exchange and support the food production and educational activities of struggling communities in the United States and elsewhere.
