Terra Madre Salone del Gusto
September 22 - September 26
Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is an international event, organised by Slow Food, dedicated to food politics, sustainable agriculture and the environment.
Come to Parco Dora, Turin, from September 22-26, 2022 to shape the future of food with us! You can meet over 600 exhibitors in the market, and take part in a series of workshops, conferences and tastings that show how we can regenerate our planet through food.
Some events will require a ticket which will be available for purchase once the full program is published.
The theme for Terra Madre 2022 is REGENERATION
In the plant world, a tree which loses a branch can regrow it. And, if it’s replanted well, the lost branch can grow new roots and become a plant of its own.
The pandemic has changed the way we live, and has damaged all sorts of relationships; between people, between communities. The crises we were facing before Covid-19 have only gotten worse, in particular regarding social equity and inequality. And they’re made even more complex by the international geopolitical situation.
Now we must see our human community as a plant which, recovering from trauma, must grow new branches. New life. New enthusiasm.
Like trees, there are numerous examples of regeneration in nature, and we can encourage it too: Through new modes of cultivating an caring for the land, we can generate soil that’s been impoverished by monocultures and synthetic chemicals. Through farming on pastures we can regenerate mountain areas and reverse the desolation that follows their abandonment. Regeneration is also something we should aspire to for ourselves, and the food we eat.
