Event Description

Celebrate Terra Madre Day and the holidays in a relaxing way! Join us for a slow food, slow everything day hosted by Kits Village.

Drop by anytime. Potluck lunch around one, potluck dinner around six, movie later on - or something to this effect...

Any food you wish to bring for the potlucks or for other times of the day is most welcome. If you're so inclined,  please consider bringing some "slow food". For instance, this could be something you make using local ingredients. (Making pizza during the day might be fun too. If you're interested, let us know.)

In between, hang out, go for a walk at the beach, enjoy a conversation, read a book, visit the Kits Village Collaborative Garden, or relax and do nothing. And maybe board games, knitting, seed swapping, soup 'n share???...suggestions welcome or surprise us!

11 am until late.

Great Dana,

We'll have dough ready and tomato paste or pizza sauce - anyone can bring toppings to create what ever pizza they like. Best to let us know in advance, so doughmakers know how much to make.

Fully in support of pizza!

Great! Think of it as an oasis of calm in a sea of holiday frenzy.
