If you want to learn more about the Slow Food Movement visit the International Website and see how it all began and why. Since its conception it has grown and n0w has with more than one million supporters across 160+ countries.

In Australia it is represented in 4 states and the Northern Territory.

Slow Food Noosa first began in Pomona in 2003 with five members, in 2007 Matt Golinski was the President and initiated the Slow Food Noosa School Garden Project.  It has grown significantly since then but is still run by a committee of dedicated volunteers who give their time freely to make a positive difference in their community.

In 2017, the group launched Australia’s first ‘Snail of Approval’ program to recognise local leaders of the global Slow Food philosophy of ‘good, clean and fair’ food.
