Northwest VEG Presents: August Portland Potluck


Have a great meal with old friends and meet new ones at the August Northwest VEG Potluck.

Then stick around for a great talk by Betty Shelley, founder of the "Reduce Your Waste Project" and instructor of the popular, "Less is More" class. Reducing waste is a simple and profound way to lessen your impact on the world around you. Come learn how your actions can make a difference! Betty Shelley and her husband, Jon, have produced just one 35-gallon can of garbage per year since 2006. Betty is a Master Recycler and a Recycling Information Specialist for Metro Regional Government in Portland, Oregon. She finds waste reduction to be a creative way to help reduce her impact on the Earth’s resources, and a great way to save her own resources. In 2013, Betty won the NW Earth Institute Founders Earth Leadership Award, given to those who have “demonstrated leadership toward creating a thriving future for all.”

The potluck will be held at the West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Rd., Portland. Come to the potluck at 5:00pm, the presentation at 6:30pm, or both! Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use. Need plant-based ideas?

Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events.
