The Goose Creek Slow Food Convivium (chapter) includes folks from Piatt and surrounding counties. It hasn’t been established long and welcomes new members. Each Convivium has particular interests based on those of its members. Goose Creek members want to learn how to better access locally grown or produced foods. They are also interested in learning how to help improve nutritional choices for children.

Goose Creek is now planning events for the coming year. We would like to hear your suggestions: Cooking demonstrations, potluck social dinners, dining out, wine dinners & education, gastronomical lectures, biodiversity discussions. Really, we are a “foodie” social club getting together with like-minded people and having a good time. Whether you choose to join the Convivium or not, we would love to have you come.
