Veggie Potluck in a Pocket Park, then: Commitment or Laissez Faire!


Saturday,  Oct 13th, 2018 @ 6:00 PM
Location: Warwick Park in St Matthews, just off the freeway: Go west on Westport Rd from I-265 Watterson Freeway for just one block.  Then turn right onto Washburn Ave and go a lazy 5 blocks until you see the park sign at the Warwick Ave intersection.  Turn right and park in the lot and head to the pavillion.  There's water and facilities here, and lots of picnic benches for public use.

EarthSave Louisville's Phytophile* Potluck-- Saturday, October 13th, 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 "carnival" foods-- replacements/substitutions are easy and all are encouraged to make this effort. 

7 p.m. PROGRAM:  Following our thoughtfully prepared healthy and plant-based potluck (thank you everyone!), our activity this month will be to learn about the pros and cons of transitioning towards a plant-based diet using the dual technique of commitment and lassaiz faire approaches.  When to use one or the other or both when attempting to encourage and influence the planet to think about their food choices. All will walk away from this event as better people for having come.  As usual we shall touch on Health, Planet, Ethics: This has everything to do with food choices, amen.  Yup, worth a discussion.  This will be embraced from an EarthSave perspective, so get ready to be moved.   Let's learn and build a wall of passion and power for thoughtful actions towards cohabitants of our space/time/planet.  Come with an openness and experience non-judgemental conversation after the presentation. Lot's of why's and how's; be ready for a jolt.  It's not at all what you think.   Come with questions! Come with an openness to new ideas and a willingness to share your stories--you will be glad you did. We can learn from each other. Plantastic songs will set the mood.  

Make plans to invite friends/relatives to our welcoming community of those curious about a diet heavily endowed with plants.

Announcements will be given (pertaining to healthy food and behavior change).

8 p.m.- 9 p.m. Frisbee in the Park:
Immediately after the event, all are invited to socialize, walk around, fly kites, throw footballs or enjoy a round of ultimate frisbee.

2016 Per Person Suggested Cost:   Free, but we will run out of food if you show up without food to share. Bring a complete place-setting with utensils to be ecological.  If there's not enough food, there are food trucks galore at this event.

EVERYTHING ALWAYS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ABSOLUTELY! If you bring food and this is your first time, please call ahead for a brief orientation and perfuctory but mandatory invitation (502 299 9520).

The monthly EarthSave Louisville Vegetarian Potluck is a thing to behold; keep your calendar open and you kitchen ready to make some mensch-food for all.

"Eat and Learn!" The potluck event is a great way to swap recipes, meet like-minded people, and hear the latest news on this cutting-edge lifestyle. There's always lots of delicious food. Ingredients are displayed. Bring copies of your recipe if you wish. Bring your camera or pen as culinary memory jogger, try to find the creator of your favorite dish and thank them. Bring your business cards and little black book. "Meet, greet, and eat!"

Imagine a world...
Quote from John Robbins, Earthsave founder: Imagine a world where the land is fertile, the water is clean, the air is fresh, and all are fed. EarthSave helps make this world a reality by promoting the benefits of plant-based food choices for our health and our environment. Let's discuss the activation of this imagination on Facebook.
