Bringing Home Terra Madre: A Panel Discussion on Slow Food & Maine Food

Join us Friday Dec. 10, on International Terra Madre Day for a special presentation by some of Maine’s recent delegates to the Slow Food Terra Madre conference in Torino, Italy. Panelists to include Robin Alden & Ted Ames (Penobscot East), Amanda Beal (ELFC and Graduate Student at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts), Lisa Fernandes (Portland Maine Permaculture) and Russell Libby (MOFGA).

The event co-sponsored by  Slow Food Portland, Portland Maine Permaculture and the Eat Local Foods Coalition of Maine.

The event is at the North Deering Grange, and is open to the public.
The best way to RSVP is to go to the Maine Permaculture Meetup website and RSVP on their event page:

You will need to create a login for their site in order to RSVP this way, and if you’re not connected to the Permaculture group, and their activities, I highly recommend it. If you don’t want to do that, just email me directly off the list and let me know you’re coming so we have an approximate head count. The attendance was originally set at 75, but there should be plenty of room for everyone who wants to come.

*Please bring something to share with a focus on local ingedients if possible. Appetizer-type items, foods for tasting, beverages and sweet things are all welcome! Consider making a label to sit next to your food items. And in true permaculture tradition, please bring your own potluck kit (dish, utensils, glass/cup, napkin) for minimal impact.
