Cittaslow Food and Wine Group
The Cittaslow Food and Wine group has gathered together local chefs, restaurant owners, produce growers, vintners, wineries, food artisans and those who just enjoy good food and beverages. They meet regularly to develop ideas to promote understanding of Cittaslow and Slow Food principles, raise funds for Cittaslow projects and develop cooperative efforts between those involved in the food and wine business.
The Food and Wine group meets at 6 00 pm on the last Monday of each month (other than December) at the Cittaslow Community Garden, Kessell Road, Goolwa. All members are welcome.

How To Recycle
Cittaslow Goolwa has a strong commitment to recycling. Recent How To sessions focussed on this and were conducted by Tess Sapia, Project and Education Officer with the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority (FRWA). The sessions were held at Cittaslow Corner and the Goolwa Community Garden. Tess's presentations were well received and provoked many questions. Topics covered in the sessions included the benefits of recycling and composting, what happens to your waste, recycling & organics after it leaves the kerb, Material Recycling Facilities, landfills, composting facilities, and much more.
The recent introduction of fortnightly collection of recyclables and green organics in the Alexandrina Council is being watched closely and will be surveyed in the near future to assess it's popularity. Those who attended the Cittaslow sessions were very appreciative of this initiative and the detailed information that was provided by Tess. Unfortunately, there is still confusion in the community over what goes in what bin but these sessions will go a long way to clarify this. If there is sufficient interest the sessions can be repeated.
