Try Vegan Week (TVW) is an annual event that is the foundation of TVPDX. This week long series of events is where TVPDX began. The week includes workshops, speakers, dine-outs, and mentoring. The week concludes with a Vegan Prom, that will include music, photos, costumes, and community.

Here is the 6th Annual Try Vegan Week Schedule in list form.


We also have a google calendar with the events at this address

    from kelly, a committee member: I finally remembered the name of the website I was telling some of you about! allows you to create a weekly plant-based meal plan with healthy and easy recipes and populates a grocery list and a daily nutritional break down. I only have 2 criticisms; I usually ended up adding more spices than what it called for to enhance flavor and I also wish it allowed you to change the number of servings per recipe. Being single, I usually ended up halving some of the recipes or eating a lot of leftovers throughout the week because most of the recipes serve 4-6 people each. Try the winter squash chowder recipe- it is soooooooo good! It is my favorite soup!

      I host couchsurfers and air bnb people regularly. However, I only host people on the weekends. So, let me check and see if I am hosting anyone that first weekend yet. =)
