Earthsave Baltimore E-News April Update: Earth Friendly Food Choices

Hi Meetup Member,

Here?s some info on healthier eating that I thought you might like to have, and a reminder that I?ll be leading a free one-hour workshop at Whole Foods grocery in Mt. Washington this Tuesday, April 7th at 7 pm in the caf?. The Whole Foods classes are always very casual, informative and fun. Hope you will join us!

I also wanted to remind you that tickets are available online or by mail for Earthsave?s special, annual Earth Friendly Food Choices speaking event, which is set for May 24th at the Women?s Club of Catonsville. It will feature two wonderful talks, including one by musician/ philosopher/educator /Zen Buddhist Master Dr. Will Tuttle, and one by Earthsave?s executive director Caryn Hartglass. It will be a special evening. Please join us if you can!

Just one more thing - Facebook offers folks a real nice opportunity to learn more about each other and to discover how much alike we are. It?s a great way to make new friends, to strengthen our existing relationships, and to build a network of friendly, supportive people.

Maybe I?ll see you on Facebook! Be well! Hope to see you soon!

Peace, Don Robertson
