Please join the ESC Readers Group for our January dinner gathering, where we will dine at Dharma Kitchen restaurant in Vancouver and discuss "Building An Ark: 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering" by Ethan Smith. All are welcome to attend! Note: you need not have read the book to enjoy the food, participate in the discussion and socialize! laughing

Dharma Kitchen is one of the few vegan restaurants in town and offers a tasty array of foods such as their miso soup, hearty and abundant salads, veggie burgers, potato bowls, rice bowls and an assortment of different tofu with rice dishes. Plus, their warm banana tapioca pudding is delicious!

You can read a review of the restaurant here:

Note: The price I indicated above is only approximate, as we will be ordering individually off the menu, so the price will vary according to what food you order.

About the book:
Building an Ark: 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering shows how our disregard for the natural environment has impacted on wild, domestic and companion animals.

This thought-provoking book thoroughly examines our treatment of animals, including some of our less-than-humane practices such as factory farming and fishing, puppy mills, animal testing, and trophy hunting and provides positive, solutions-based alternatives.

Building an Ark reminds us that it is not only possible, but also desirable to co-exist with animals without harming them. Some compelling options:

* Return to humane animal husbandry
* Consider a vegetarian diet - healthy, humane and environmentally sound
* Raise animal welfare awareness in your community, school or business
* Help the elderly, ill and imprisoned with companion animals
* Create an animal food bank
* Restore endangered habitat to bring back species
* Take part in a community garden
* Restore natural habitat in cities
* Campaign for humane pest control
* Find alternatives to bottom trawling and longlining
* Boycott companies that practice animal cruelty
