At 6pm, after the potluck, we welcome guest presenter, Katie Mae! Katie will do an informative cooking demo and show us how to make the most nutritious foods taste absolutely delicious! With plant foods as her vehicle, Katie Mae is all about inspiring and supporting people in being their best self. Through nutrition consults, cooking workshops and plant-based recipes Katie empowers people to eat in a way that is 100% sustainable, healthy, compassionate and delicious! Katie sums up her dietary philosophy by saying: “Shifting to a plant-based diet is the best thing we can do for our health, our children and the planet.” 

At this demo you’ll receive:

• Tasty vegan samples
• All of the recipes to take home
• The 4 pillars of healthy eating

After graduation, she came to Santa Rosa, CA to learn up close and personal from the experts in plant-based nutrition.

The Potluck

At 5pm before the presentation, join us for great food and conversation at our monthly vegan potluck! Remember, you don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to attend. Just show up with a vegan dish to share with at least 8 people. Vegan simply means no animal products — no meat, dairy, eggs or honey.

Please also remember to bring your own plate, cup and silverware utensils. We would like to make this a waste-free event.

We are deeply grateful to the Sonoma Humane Society for continuing to make their classroom available to us for our potlucks and other events. The Sonoma Humane Society is just west of Llano Rd. on the north side of Highway 12, between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol (look for the big metal dog). You can park around back if you'd like, the classroom is the furthest left door on the back of the building. For more information:

    Entertaining and informative. Katie is a great speaker and the subject of healthy vegan nutrition is an important issue.

    Sorry - we signed up and were bringing a friend. Then Ned got to feeling not so great and we were lagging after an all-day workshop. Hope it was a great evening! Patti and Davis

    Coming from Benicia & concerned about getting lost. Found directions on goggle map to Hwy 12, but what street to I get off at to get to Humane Society.

      Google sometimes takes you the wrong way. Take 101 to Hwy 12 and go WEST towards Sebastopol...Hwy 12 will turn into a 2 lane road and when you see the intersection of LLano Road, you will see the big metal dog to the right in a little bit - turn in there and stay to the left of the driveway and come to the back We are in the room across from the dog runs
