Slow Food’s Ark of Taste is all about saving cherished foods, one product at a time.  Specifically, the US Ark of Taste is a catalog of over 200 delicious foods in danger of extinction.  By promoting and eating Ark products we help ensure they remain in production and on our plates.
This year’s plant sale is in conjunction with Grow Team ONE, who is doing their Annual Perennial Sale at the same time. The Ark of Taste 6 packs have been grown by Half Pint Farm.  In addition to supporting the Ark of Taste with your purchase of heirloom varietals, you also have the opportunity to support 1000 Gardens in Africa, another Slow Food initiative.  If you are interested in learning more, check out the links below!
