Lobbying warrior, Tom Fitzgerald, will describe what just happened in the recent quest in Frankfort to make our society and earth a better place. As the Executive Director of Kentucky Resources Council (, Tom will report whether Kentucky lawmakers moved the needle in a positive direction. Come and find out. Tom has periodically spoken at Sierra Club and EarthSave gatherings for quite some time--at just the right time. Come with questions and a pen to write down actions to take. Will the legislators really fix mountain-top removal? Will they accelerate green technology? Will "burgoo" be voted as the new official state food?

EarlyBird Special -- 4:00 PM

" Veggie Table" Cooking Class

Seeing is believing...So come and see at 4:00pm on Saturday, March 13th. Our culinary ChristopherColumbus board member Ryan Egly will make a vegan concoction before your eyes. Will his ingredients be costly? Will the difficulty be untenable by most? Will it take all night to whip up? No. No. No. No need for cheese, meat, eggs, or cream to make things delectable. See this!

Come every month at 4:00 pm to watch and learn from a rotating line of proficient cooks that can show you how to be successful, healthy, and savvy in the kitchen on a budget with little or no incoming skills, while maintaining a fully-plant-based diet--whether cooking for 6 or alone. This event is free and awesome: There's always room when you want to learn.
