Terra Madre Day is being celebrated today with more than 170,000 people taking part in 1,140 events in communities across 125 countries to promote eating locally and sustainable food production. Organized by the global Slow Food network of convivia, Terra Madre food communities and partner organizations supporting good, clean and fair food, communities are coming together in collective meals, local food festivals, rallies, seminars, workshops for children, excursions to producers and much more, demonstrating the diversity and life of the movement.
