Join Animal Protection and Rescue League for a vegan cooking class and a screening of Echo, the documentary. Learn about the art of vegan cooking and enjoy the food, too. This workshop is geared to help you make a transition to a vegan diet, and to show you how easy it is to prepare tasty vegan food. It is also geared to educate you about the vegan products that are available to you. The cost is $15.00 per person and the proceeds will go to Animal Protection and Rescue League. Here is a bit about the documentary:
HER life has had more twists and turns than a soap opera.
She saw one daughter murdered and rescued another from a kidnapper. She helped her son fight back from a crippling illness and even fostered her orphaned grandson.
But the time has come to say a last goodbye to Echo the elephant.
She led her family with extraordinary wisdom, grace and loyalty through drought, famine and tragedy on the Kenyan plains of Amboseli, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, until her death at the age of 65.
Sir David Attenborough filmed his first documentary with Echo and her clan more than 20 years ago.
He has now filmed a new show, Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant — screened on BBC2 at 8pm tonight — to celebrate her life as well as to commemorate her death.
Sir David, 84, said: “Around 20 years ago I met and was filmed with a remarkable elephant called Echo.
“Since then, many other films have been made about her and, not unexpectedly, she has found her way into the hearts of millions of viewers.
“A lot of what we know about elephant characters has been learned from Echo.
I look forward to seeing you here.
