About the Eugene Convivium

Slow Food Eugene: Willamette Valley Convivium was established in 2000 by Nonie Fish, food writer, restaurant reviewer, and cooking instructor. In 2002, a leadership board was established to sponsor educational events, form partnerships with other local organizations, and coordinate with Slow Food USA. Slow Food Eugene is a vibrant and diverse convivium whose members include restaurateurs, food purveyors, farmers, educators, and committed food-and-wine lovers from all walks of life.

Eugene, Oregon is located at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, one of the richest agricultural regions in the world. Eugene and the surrounding areas of Lane County are recognized centers of small-scale sustainable agriculture. Our markets overflow with organically raised vegetables, fruits, nuts, meat, poultry, and cheeses. Local wineries produce award-winning pinot noir, pinot gris, and many other varieties. The nearby Pacific Ocean provides the finest seafood. The Cascade and Coast Range mountains offer fish, game, and mushrooms. Slow Food Eugene is dedicated to the celebration and preservation of this bountiful heritage through events, education, and political action.

Statutes of the Slow Food Eugene: Willamette Valley Convivium, as approved at the November 2003 business meeting.

Membership: Slow Food Eugene encourages interested individuals and families to join Slow Food USA, our parent organization, to support the important goals of the national and international Slow Food movement and receive Slow Food publications. For those who wish to participate in the local Convivium on an informal basis, we also offer participation as a Friend of Slow Food Eugene.
