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 Corner Lot 1 Cadell Street. All members are welcome.
Our next events
How 2 make whisky and gin?
Well now is your chance.
Join us at the Fleurieu Distillery right here in Goolwa.
Gareth Andrews will take us through the finer points and give us a look behind what goes into making award winning spirits.
Gareth began the Steam Exchange Brewery in 2004 and was one of only three craft breweries in South Australia at the time.
The success of the business has allowed him to eventually become a distillery, which had been a long-term goal. The businesses focus is now 90 per cent whisky, 5 per cent gin and five per cent beer.
When: Wednesday 9th May at 4pm
Where: Fleurieu Distillery on the Wharf
Following a tour and talk we will have an opportunity to try some of Gareth’s products at a discounted price.
This is a free event. Numbers are definitely limited.
Please book by email to Debbie Smith - email@example.com

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.
FRWA information publications are available for download.
