The Snail of Approval Committee aims to create a recognizable identification system, directory and metrics for local businesses in Santa Cruz, including restaurants, bars, food and beverage artisans, and stores and markets that embody the principles of good, clean and fair food.
Edible Gardens Tour
The Santa Cruz Edible Gardens Tour takes place each August. Public places and private homes host tours of their edible gardens, including demonstrations by experts in gardening and other Do-It-Yourself topics. The event is a daylong celebration of edible gardening where participants are self-guided throughout the city on foot, bike or by car during the day, culminating in a lively happy hour celebration at the end of the tour, where participants share ideas on how to grow their own good, clean, and fair food.
Behind the Scenes Tour
Our new Behind the Scenes Tour is gearing up to be a series of events highlighting local food artisans and producers throughout Santa Cruz. This ticketed tour will consistent of various visits to different locations including a tour and product tasting. Ideas currently include, but are not limited to: bakeries, chocolates, poultry production, cheese makers, ice creameries, breweries and more!
Heritage Foods Project
The Heritage Foods Project is part of Slow Food USA’s work to preserve American food traditions through the Ark of Taste and RAFT programs. We’re bringing these projects to Santa Cruz by identifying foods that are unique to this area, part of our local heritage, and/or in danger of being lost in this region. This project currently consists of the authoring of a collaborative book exploring these issues and is in collaboration with the Agricultural Heritage Museum of Wastonville.
