It looks like April is going to be a busy month for getting out and celebrating with my fellow vegans (and vegan wanna-bees).
Now there are two more dates to add to your calendar.
April 19, the Berkeley Vegan Earth Day will happen from 9:30am to 3:00pm. The speakers are nutritionists, animal activists, doctors and chefs, including Dr. Alan Goldhamer of True North and Keegan Kuhn co-director of Cowspiracy.
Spend the day listening to educational and earth-friendly talks and panel discussions, or wonderful food demos. There will also be vendors selling vegan products and activist groups to connect with.
Not to be outdone by its East Bay neighbor, Oakland is planning a Veg Week!
The movie on Tuesday will be Forks Over Knives followed by Q&A with a health coach and vegan athletes. Thursday is a Vegan Bar Crawl and Friday join the Youth Hip Hop Green Dinners for an event. The Veg Fest on Saturday will take place at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater – more details to come, but there will be lots of free food samples. Sunday’s event is a bus ride to Animal Place farm animal sanctuary in Grass Valley.
The Friday and Sunday events are by invitation only. Visit the site for more details.
I love living in the Bay Area and having these great events happening. It’s going to be a great spring. See you at the events.
