Thumbnail image | Message from Carlo PetriniPope Francis’s message to Carlo Petrini and indeed, all Slow Food members:

“Slow Food and Terra Madre’s activities, aimed at promoting methods of food production in harmony with nature, inspire feelings of sincere appreciation in my heart. I therefore encourage you to continue with this meaningful work. There is much need for people and organizations that encourage the cultivation and protection of Creation. Cultivating and protecting Creation is an instruction from God given not just at the start of history (see Genesis 2:15), but to each of us, in order to responsibly make the world grow, transforming it into a place habitable for everyone.”
