Welcome to the Slow Food Study Guide. This guide serves as an introduction to some of the library's resources on this topic, and links to some other online sources that we think might interest you.
The Slow Food movement began in Italy in 1986, and spread to North America in 2000. In Canada, the Slow Food Movement has been active for over ten years, with especially strong presences in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. There is a Winnipeg chapter of the Movement, and a link to their site is posted a little further down this page.
Within this guide you will find information on topics such as sustainability, local growing and eating, advocacy groups, and other initiatives connected with this movement. This guide is a starting point; a collection of resources which will help you get started with your research--as such, it is not definitive.
Doing research is a time-consuming process. We are happy to help you with this process, so please ask!
