We love when a product for your outer body sounds like a delicious snack for your inner! We want to send a hearty shout-out to @davinesnorthamerica, a major supporter of Slow Food USA. #Davines uses #ArkofTaste products from #SlowFoodPresidia farms in their sustainable hair care. They've supported this year's Plant a Seed campaign by making it possible to send free kits to school gardens and adding samples of their 'DEDE' hair care to each kit and a cute tote that we're packing it all up in! ⠀ .⠀ This month, For Sustainable Beauty Month 2019, we're encouraging Davines salons to collaborate directly with local Slow Food chapters to help supoprt their mission, and to introduce your clients to the Slow Food lifestyle. We'll be talking about ideas on how to get involved, and you can use #SBMonth2019 on all your posts so we can support and share your initiatives! They've also added a donation option to their online sales all month, so go order some incredible shampoo and support the earth and your fave non-profit in the process!⠀ .

Happy Saturday! We hope it's slow and smells like sourdough (or something equally appetizing). ⠀ .⠀ We love this fabulous shot and post from @oldworldlevain, posted in anticipation of what sounds like a fantastic slow bread event last Thursday... @slowfoodavl and @ashevillebreadfest [had] a bread happy hour [last] Thursday at @westendbakery! Try local breads and olive oil, and hear some of the bread bakers, including our @maia_sur, discuss their craft and the upcoming festival. This is a great opportunity to learn more about @slowfoodusa too! Photo by the incredible @nicolemcconville.⠀ .⠀ #slowbread #slowfood #slowsaturday #theartofslowliving #baker #glambread
It's too early for tomatoes for most of the US, but it's the perfect time to get your #plantaseed peas in the ground! Pea plants need something to climb, and we're loving the look of these bamboo pyramids... What's your chosen method for supporting your peas?⠀ .⠀ Curious about the two pea varieties in the Plant a Seed kit this year? Well... ⠀ The Laxton's Progress No. 9 Shell Pea is from Slow Food's #ArkofTaste, and has been planted and cultivated since the early 19th century. First conceived by Thomas Laxton, these peas are starchier, richer, and larger than your typical pea. It is also known as a dwarf variety; it's tendrils and stocks are easy to manage as it grows, making it the perfect size for an indoor container, a small outdoor space, or a school garden!⠀ .⠀ The Beauregard Snow Pea from @Row7seeds is so vibrantly purple, you'll hardly believe there are peas and not blueberries inside its pods! Named after Willy Wonka's Violet Beauregarde, the snow pea is easy to grow, fun to eat, and utterly delicious. You'll eat these peas until you're purple in the face.⠀ .⠀ Head over to buff.ly/2Fz8Xes to order yours!
Wear your veggies on your sleeve! This #ArkofTaste Tuesday, we want to show some love to our friends at @tater__tats, who have supported our Plant a Seed campaign with the freshest trio of temporary tattoos in every kit (a beet, a squash and some peas, just like the seed packets)! At the top of the stack here is the Tater Tats beet tattoo, which looks just like the Early Blood Turnip-Rooted Beet and will look really fly on your upper arm. So get yourself a kit and go follow @tater__tats—they're making fresh, new veggie tats all the time and supporting small farmers with every purchase you make!⠀ .⠀ At Tater Tats we believe in whole foods and the people who raise them. We think vegetables are absolutely vital. We like farmers; they tend to be some of the most open-hearted, resourceful, and generous people we know. Ten percent of sales goes to support them, and in turn, to deepen local economies, soil health, and human connectedness. Every purchase you make at Tater Tats helps make good food and good farming, work.⠀ .⠀ #TaterTats #veggies #slowfood #beet #veggietats #spring
