Announcing a new Meetup for Orlando Vegan Meetup Group!
What: Better World Book Club: The Food Revolution (Parts 1 &2)
When: Wednesday, July 27, 2011 7:00 PM
Where: Raphsodic Cooperative Company
710 N. Mills Avenue
Orlando, FL 32803
This month's selection is The Food Revolution (Parts 1 & 2) by John Robbins.
About this book: Here, the man who started the "food revolution" with the million-plus-selling Diet for a New America, boldly posits that, collectively, our personal diet can save ourselves and the world. If, according to chaos theory, the beating of a butterfly's wing can cause a hurricane in another part of the world, try this out for chaotic cause and effect: monar ch butterflies are dying in droves due to genetically-engineered corn growing in the Midwest. There is also a direct correlation between the Big Mac in your hand and the mile-wide river now running across the North Pole. Learn the truth about foods we are eating that are, in Robbins' words, "unsafe on any plate."
Join us for Better World Book Club! Every month we will be reading and discussing books that focus on:
* humane education
* organic/raw/vegetarian/vegan cooking/diet/lifestyle
* human and non-human animal welfare and rights
* environmental issues and solutions
* creating a compassionate world for all
Everyone is welcome to peacefully and respectfully discuss their thoughts and ideas.
Meetings are held every fourth Wednesday of the month at Raphsodic Bakery (710 N. Mills Avenue Orlando, FL). We have an online discussion available at all times at: http://www.goodreads....
