Early birds are welcome to help set up. I will try to be there at 10:00.

On the park map we will be south of the Visitor Center.

About Discovery Park:

For a park map:

What to bring:

A prepared dish of raw, organic vegan ingredients (no animal products!). As this is a picnic, whole organic fruits, as well as salads are especially welcome! As it is outdoors, durian is more than welcome (as well as durian puddings, pies, etc.!)

Please provide a detailed list of the ingredients.

These events are about abundance! If eaten alone, one person's food should fill at least 2-3 people.

If it's your first time and you don't know what to bring, but are interested in coming, just bring an organic salad (greens or fruit) with dressing on the side.

Please bring your own plates and silverware, as well as serving utensils for your food.

Please use standard cleanliness practices when preparing your food!

What to bring - EXTRAS:

In addition to having our raw potluck, we like to have fun, so feel free to bring frisbees, basketball, volleyball, tennis equipment, etc. Plan to have fun! Badminton equipment is also welcome. Perhaps we'll have another game of kickball or ultimate frisbee! I also plan to bring some juggling pins, etc., so if you're a juggler, please show us how it's done!

If you prefer not sitting on the ground, please bring blankets and/or chairs. Let's celebrate the start of summer with some wonderful company, some fun games and activities, and some vibrant raw living foods!!!

Bring bicycles for fun cruises around the park and down to the waterfront!

In honor of, please consider bringing drums!

How about bringing some other instruments?

Newcomers are welcome!

Well-behaved children are welcome!

I look forward to seeing you there!

There is no charge for the event, but donations are welcome to cover
Jeff's U-Haul rental for all the great picnic supplies!

    I'll be biking to this event too. Will plan to start from the UW at noon (exact location to be announced after I find someone who can tell me where there's free car parking - for those of you who still use those things). The ride will be 7 miles long, mostly on the BG trail and quiet streets. Feel free to chime in here with suggested start locations, or get a group to start from where you live. I'll be looking for someone who plans on driving to meet at the start and take our food to the picnic. Volunteers?

    Hope to see at least a few of you.
