Join the Western Maryland Veg Life MeetUp for our Summerfest 2012 Vegan Potluck!
This summer, a few of our members are, once again, headed to The North American Vegetarian Society's Vegetarian Summerfest at the end of June. Check out www.vegetariansummerfest.org for info about some of the speakers and topics! This annual event is at the University of Pittsburgh in Johnstown, PA for five days of workshops on health and nutrition, lifestyle issues, cooking, recipes, exercise and fitness, animal rights, compassionate living, gardening, Earth stewardship, and more! It also includes three great vegan meals every day, including gluten-free, raw foods, and allergy-safe options. It's always a fun and informative event, and we will undoubtedly have lots to share and great ideas for upcoming discussions.
So, join us to hear about our Summerfest experience, and share your vegetarian summer adventures, too! Enjoy a relaxed, family-friendly gathering and great vegan food! Whether you're just curious about vegetarianism or you're a veg veteran and wish you knew more vegetarians and vegans in the area, come share a great meal and expand your veg social circle!
We are a supportive group where we can openly discuss dietary issues, environmental and health concerns, and social challenges. We welcome your input and ideas for discussion topics, themes, demonstrations, and any challenges and/or successes related to a plant-based diet and lifestyle.
Please bring a dish containing no animal products (no meat, egg, dairy, or honey) to serve at least six to eight people. For recipe ideas, check out www.vegweb.com. Also, please bring a recipe card or list of ingredients to help those with allergies or food sensitivities.
Note: If possible, bring along your own place setting (plate, bowl, cup & silverware), to ensure we have enough to go around without using disposable stuff. Thanks!
We're looking forward to seeing you!
