The feast-happy foodies over at Issue Project Room tell are sponsoring a free (multi-course!) meal on Feb. 4, featuring foraged and gleaned local plants and animals. We’re not exactly sure what sort of vegetation to expect in the dead of February when even the feral cats are on the DL, so we’ll let hand it over to them:

Interested in eating a foraged meal but don’t have the time/mycological certification/emergency care insurance to forage yourself? Join Spurse at Issue Project Room on 2/4 for a mid-winter multi-course feast comprised of foraged and gleaned local plants and animals in UNIQUE preparations (think novelty, not decompo-stronomy). Just like foraging, it’s totally free! All you have to bring is an interest in discussing the ecological culture—both communal and microbial—of preparing and eating food. The event is part of Issue Project Room’s “Species of Spaces,” an ongoing series of informal conversations which serve as an open forum for community input. It will be more sidewalk-swiped dandelion greens and wild game, less like this episode of Portlandia. Space is limited, so RSVP required.

Species of Spaces dinner, Sat., Feb. 4 at 7 p.m., 110 Livingston St., downtown.
