On Sunday October 14, 2012, we’re going to be having a potluck dinner to send off this year’s Maine Terra Madre* delegates. The dinner will take place at Local Sprouts Cafe (649 Congress Street) from 5-7pm.
This year’s delegates from Maine are:
Heather Chandler, Sunrise Guides
Sarah Bostik, Cultivating Community
Holli Cederholm, Proud Peasants Farm
We’re also inviting all past Terra Madre delegates to join us at the potluck and share stories of their Terra Madre trip, as this year’s delegates look forward to what is certainly going to be an amazing Slow Food experience.
Just prior to the potluck at Local Sprouts Cafe will be Portland Permaculture’s monthly swap.
It’s a great event, for more information: http://www.meetup.com/portlandpermaculture/events/81140452/
We are also in the process of reorganizing Slow Food Portland’s steering committee. If you have any interest in being on the steering committee, or volunteering with the chapter, please let me know.
Come learn more about Terra Madre, Slow Food, and what you can do to support good, clean, fair food in Maine.
We hope you can join us.
*Terra Madre is Slow Food International’s major bi-annual conference held in Torino, Italy held to foster discussion and introduce innovative concepts around food and agriculture and to bring together those players in the food chain who together support sustainable agriculture, fishing, and breeding with the goal of preserving taste and biodiversity.
