You are cordially invited to Slow Food NYC's 6th Annual Slow Down at Project Farmhouse, just steps away from Union Square!
This year we will celebrate the 2017 Snailblazer honoree June Russell, head of GrowNYC's Greenmarket Regional Grains Project. The 'Snailblazer' award is a designation granted to those leaders in the farm-to-table movement committed to a local, sustainable, and fair food system.
This year's Slow Down will be a one-of-a-kind celebration hosted at Grow NYC's Project Farmhouse, a state-of-the-art sustainability center and event space steps away from the Union Square Greenmarket. The evening's festivities will feature live music, wine, beer, a signature cocktail, silent auction with unique slow food experiences, and a seasonal supper curated by The Cleaver Co, featuring local producers & artisans.
