Hi Earthsaver,

Earthsave Baltimore has lots of new info for you on healthier eating. There are great things happening and many cool events coming up:

First of all, Earthsavers really packed the house, with 56 attending our last dinner event, which was at the Yabba Pot in Charles Village. We had a lot of laughs that night, with author and humorist Ben Shaberman sharing stories from his new book, The Vegan Monologues.

Our next educational Veg Dinner Series event will be on the fourth Saturday for a change, on October 24th, rather than on Halloween night. That one should be fun and information packed, with the very popular Registered Dietitian Marty Davey speaking on ?I?m Too Busy and I Don?t Cook.? We look forward to hearing some tips from Marty on eating healthy while on the go. Please RSVP by email reply or by calling[masked]-3043.

Here?s a reminder that Earthsave Baltimore will have an information and book sales table under a canopy in the courtyard at the Women's Expo this Saturday, Oct. 3rd, from 10 am until 7 pm at Anne Arundel Community College, in the auditorium. We have some free tickets that will save you the $10 Expo entry fee. If you'd like one or more tickets, let us know and we will leave them in the "Earthsave Baltimore" envelope for you to pick up at the entrance. For more Expo information, see

There are two real nice events set for Sunday, Oct. 4th. Poplar Spring Animal Shelter?s (in Poolesville, MD) annual open house will happen that day from 1:00 ?til 5:00. Children, and big children too, will love the chance to get to know the rescued farm animals. There will also be a live band, free vegan food, speakers, face painting, a silent auction, and lots of friendly people to meet. There?s no fee, but donations will be appreciated. See for more info.

The other Oct. 4th event (from 1-5pm) will be the second annual Community Fair in Columbia at Atholton Adventist Church, 6520 Martin Rd, Columbia, MD 21044. [masked]). Earthsave will have an information and book sales table there. We expect 700 attendees to come out and enjoy food samples, children?s activities, massages, haircuts, music, health information, screenings and check-ups by participating healthcare providers, door prize drawings, and much more. All will be provided for free.

The will be a Vegan Cooking Class with Chef Skai Davis, founder of the Yabba Pot Caf?. Learn the gentle art of creating peace in the Kitchen - Cooking the Vegan way! It will happen on Sun, Oct 11th at 3pm, and the cost is $50. Sign up to take the class at

You might also like to check out the Special Organic Wine & Cuisine Dinner Offered at Great Sage Restaurant. On October 12th, they will host a four-course prix fixe dinner paired with their new line of award-winning organic wines. Chef Russell Svoboda, formerly of La Posada (Santa Fe), will prepare four delectable courses of his globally-inspired organic and vegan cuisine, which perfectly complement all of the evening's wine selections. Dinner costs $50 per person and begins at 7 p.m. For reservations, guests should contact Great Sage at (443) 535-9400. See more info and view menu at

Finally, we received a request from [address removed] who is writing an article and would like to interview women between the ages of 35 to 45 who recently gave up meat, especially those who did so for health reasons. Please contact the reporter if you?d like to help.

Hope to see you at an event or two. Be well!

Peace, Don Robertson
