Are you veg curious? Committed to a plant based lifestyle but needing new ideas and inspiration? Or do you just like being outside and eating great food while drinking local craft beer? Come with us on April 6 to the Texas Veg Fest. There will be food, drink, cooking demonstrations, speakers and bands. It's a very family friendly event with lots of activities geared for kids. Headliner will be Best-selling cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
The Austin Sierra Club will have a booth at Veg Fest this year. Jan Adler will be coordinating the booth and can use help throughout the day. Anyone interested in putting in a two hour shift, please contact me.
The event hosts are requesting a $5 donation at the entrance. Parking is very limited so this is a good time to learn to use the bus if you aren't already familiar with it. Bus route 22 Chicon Saturday: drops off at the RBJ Health Center west of Fiesta Gardens or East 2nd and Robert Martinez. Bus route 17 Cesar Chavez Eastbound Saturday: drops off at East 2nd and Robert Martinez. Or go to http://www.capmetro.org/planner/. There will also be lots of bike parking available.

Co-leader Martha will be wearing a pink baseball cap with sparkles.
