We have a Slow Food Portland Potluck and Meeting:
Wednesday August 17, 6-8pm
@ Quimby Colony (the old Roma Restaurant)
769 Congress Street
Our special guests on Wednesday will be Nick Runkle and Justin Cutter from the Compass Green Mobile Greenhouse project.
Compass Green is a fully functional greenhouse built in the back of a box truck that grows vegetables and herbs and is powered by waste vegetable oil. They teach practical farming tools and raise awareness on sustainability through presentations, workshops, and greenhouse tours.
They will be talking about their project and giving tours of the mobile greenhouse, which we hope to have parked right in front of Quimby Colony.
We will also be talking about our plans for the $5 meal Slow Food Day of Action, which will take place on Sept. 17.
We discovered last month that while the beautiful kitchen at Quimby Colony has lots of plates and glasses, there is a definite lack of serving and eating ware, so I highly recommend everyone bring their own eating “kit” or at least a fork or spoon, and whatever serving utensils you need for your dish.
We had an amazing potluck last month with the likes of seared tuna, and amazing salads and cheese. Let’s see if we can top it this month.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can have a rough head count.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
