Come out and share the taste of Summer at Slow Food Portland's July meeting and potluck dinner. Our gardens are producing and there's lots of great stuff at the farmer's markets, so it's the ideal time to get together and share a meal and good company. This month we're going to meet up at Quimby Colony located at the old Roma Restaurant at 769 Congress Street.
In June, Karl Schatz had the privilege of taking part, along with 15 other Slow Food leaders from around the country, in a strategy session to lay the foundation for Slow Food USA's 2012 Food & Farm Bill Campaign. Karl reports that it was an extremely interesting and inspiring day-and-a-half of brainstorming, discussions and strategizing to set the stage for Slow Food's efforts to affect the most important piece of national agriculture legislation.
