June 8th, 2013 @ 6:00 PM
(Second Saturday of every month)
EarthSave Louisville will be hosting our 6 pm monthly "veggie-heavy" potluck event at the United Crescent Hill Ministries located at 150 State Street (on Frankfort Ave). Use the parking lot and on-street parking. Look for the EarthSave banners. This is right after our free cooking class at 4pm.
EarthSave Louisville's Phytophile* Potluck-- Saturday, June 8th, 6-8 p.m.
Come for the food; stay for the inspiration.
* Phytophile: Plant-loving
6 p.m. POTLUCK: Bring a plant-laden dish (cooked or raw) , your
recipe to share, and your own utensils/plates. The serving table is always "The Bomb". Make every effort to avoid dairy, eggs and the usual cast of animalistic foods; replacements/substitutions are easy if one makes the effort. Along with your dish, please bring a 3x5 card with the recipe on it (or write it down on-site). We are aware of sensitivities/restrictions: gluten intolerance, peanut allergies, vegan (no dairy, meat, eggs), Esselstyn (vegan, no oil/nuts) diet, vegetarian (no meat).
7 p.m. PROGRAM: Following our thoughtfully prepared healthy and plant-based potluck (thank you everyone!), our presentation this month will be given by a tag team of food/herb/health authors, Peter Klarman and Rehmannia Dean Thomas. They both lay the foundation for nutrition/health/balance in our lives--and why not use the power of thousands of years of tweeking by dedicated researchers (a.k.a. shamans). Come and see! Have your questions ready. Walk away with solutions in your hand. So then, do you want to share a time with someone on all cylinders? Then attend this event--You are going to want to hear this first hand. Bring a pen to help this stuff sink in, even though there is no quiz at the end.
Time for Q&A will be alloted. You will learn something if you attend--so come! Expect to get inspired and challenged.
Make plans to invite friends/relatives to our welcoming community of those with high plant-affinity.
