Of all the well known names we came across at the Chelsea Flower Show, I was particularly pleased to meet Bunny Guinness. We are on the same wavelength as far as gardening is concerned, not least on the subject of Slow Food. In today’s Telegraph Bunny Guinness manages to devote three whole pages in praise of Slow Food. She quotes a speech made by Prince Charles at a Slow Food event at Highgove in which the Prince says:
“The point about the Slow Food movement is reminding people about the enjoyment of proper food and how it is all linked to the management of the landscape and the countryside with all the intimate connections between food production and culture. So, I wanted to say that it’s not just Slow Food but Slow Agriculture, Slow Healthcare and a few other things beside. All these things are linked.”
Which is about as good a definition of Slow Life as we are going to find.
