Earthsave Update Correction
I'm back with my batteries fully recharged after five great days at Vegetarian Summerfest in Johnstown, PA.
My last Earthsave update contained one mistake - the wrong time for the Black Diamonds film screening, and one important omission - the date and time of the next Earthsave Veg Dinner Series event in Owings Mills, July 12th from 6-9 pm.
Here's he corrected info. Please listen in to my radio interview this Thursday! Hope to see you soon!
Peace, Don Robertson
RADIO INTERVIEW: Don Robertson, founding director of Earthsave Baltimore, will be on the WomanTalk Live radio show from 6-7 pm on Wednesday, June 25th, on WVIE, 1370 AM in Baltimore. The popular show is co-hosted by Ginny Robertson (Don's wife) and Ann Quasman.

He will also share some of his personal results, inspirations, benefits, and discoveries he made during his transition, nineteen years ago, to vegetarianism, and later to veganism.
