The Slowpoke is for those who believe that the truest pleasures in life can be found around a dinner table or a campfire. That real food is grown and made locally and sustainably – and that nothing beats when it comes from your own or a friend’s backyard. That sharing skills, resources or even a good old cup of flour is one of the most wonderful things about a community. That hands in the dirt trumps hands on the keyboard. That local makers who use time-tested methods often make things best – and that the fruits of their labour will last a lifetime rather than just a brief time. That considered is better than rushed. That homemade is better than bought.

It’s for those who do their best to live a life that is simple, local and authentic.

The Slowpoke is founded and edited by editor, publisher and lifestyle stylist, Emma Bowen. (All words and photos by Emma Bowen unless otherwise noted.)

We are based in Sydney, Australia.
