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.

How To Recycle
Cittaslow Goolwa has a strong commitment to recycling. The groups most 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.

On Saturday 29th April, local facilitator Jenny Gunson took a select group of Cittaslow Goolwa members and their guests through a fun felting workshop. The day ended with those attending producing colourful felt creations, including 3D Cittaslow snails, for display at the 2017 Cittaslow International Assembly at Goolwa.
