A new place to visit in Goolwa
Goolwa became Australia's first Cittaslow town in 2007 and the organisation now has it's very own 'headquarters', known as Cittaslow Corner.
You'll find it in the Old Council Chamber building on the corner of Goolwa Terrace and Cadell Street.
Cittaslow Corner, Goolwa
Cittaslow is a global movement, based on the Slow Food movement which was founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986. It's all about taking time out to think about what we should be doing and how we should be doing it. It involves promoting sustainability, creativity and local food and produce in order to improve quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors.
There's free food too as Cittaslow supports the Grow Free movement and hosts a Grow Free cart. The message on the cart is pretty well self-explanatory; 'Take what you need, give what you can'. Locals regularly place excess produce from their veggie or herb gardens, seeds or home-made jams and chutneys.
