Hi Everyone, 


The charity that runs this group ( is looking for a new Office Manager. Our current one is returning to school full time. I realize most of you getting this won't be looking for a job or have any friends looking for an admin job. But could you pass this ad below on to anyone you know who KNOWS people who do office admin? 

While we sincerely appreciate dedication to our mission of promoting the plant based diet, the person we are looking for must have Quickbooks experience and office admin experience. No exceptions. As a registered charity, we want to run a tight ship and make you proud of us! :-)



Have you noticed that our group has hit almost 980 members? This is great! We would love to make it to 1000. Can you help? This means spreading the word to people who are not vegetarian. We're not a clique and everyone is welcome, veg or not! As we often say, there's no planet B, we're all in this together. 


Thanks for your help with both of the above. Such great people in this meetup!


Nancy (on behalf of Earthsave Canada)
