GOOD Magazine Block Party:Support Slow Food Nation

Slow Food and GOOD Magazine—“the magazine that gives a damn”—have embarked on a partnership to connect and enhance community among progressive, proactive people working for a better world. This post is an invitation on two fronts: we’re inviting you to subscribe to GOOD magazine and select Slow Food as the non-profit you’d like to receive 100% of your $20 subscription fee AND, if you do so, we’re inviting you to a big, great BLOCK PARTY at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco on Sunday, July 20 to eat, drink, and celebrate all things GOOD.

To be clear, when you subscribe to GOOD Magazine, you get:

(1) One year of GOOD Magazine (Nominated for two National Magazine Awards in its first year)
(2) Entry to all GOOD parties & free drinks (You’re just in time for the huge party next Sunday!)
(3) Plus, GOOD gives 100% of your $20 to Slow Food! (It’s like making a donation and getting great stuff at the same time.)

To RSVP (you can subscribe and RSVP at the same time) go to: www.goodmagazine.com/events/sf08

Added bonus! Slow Food Berkeley is hosting a food and information concession at the Block Party, selling a plate of local summer tomatoes, cheese and stone fruit, all sourced from vendors at the Slow Food Nation Market. The stand will also have materials to help Bay Area residents eating locally in their communities.

We’ll bring the news to you.

Ann Tenakhongva, 62, and her husband, Clark Tenakhongva, 65, sort traditional Hopi Corn at their home on First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona on September 28, 2022. The corn comes from the families’ field in the valley between First Mesa and Second Mesa, which Clark had just harvested. The corn is organized on racks to dry out and then stored in cans and bins for years to come. Much of the corn is ground up for food and ceremonial purposes. Corn is an integral part of Hopi culture and spirituality. (Photo by David Wallace)

Climate-Driven Drought Is Stressing the Hopi Tribe’s Foods and Traditions

Most Hopi grow corn with only the precipitation that falls on their fields, but two decades of drought have some of them testing the waters of irrigation and hoping they can preserve other customs with their harvests.
