Awesome! I will be there. I look forward to the food vendors :D
I'm not sure if the OP even visits here, but if you do, is there an update for the food vendors yet? That is my favorite part of veggie fest. I really don't care about the talks that much. They would be preaching to a member of the choir.
Except Ms Kaminsky might be interesting. It always comes back to food for me :P
We are also happy to announce the addition of Q&A sessions--
small group discussions throughout the day on a variety of topics:
Effective Activism - with Pattrice Jones of VINE sanctuary
Interacting with Non-veg Family Members – with Casey Taft, Ph.D.
Raising Vegan Children – with Maribeth Abrams, M.S
Your Favorite Dishes Turned Vegan – with Nicole Graziano, M.Ed.
GMO Food and Agrochemical Concerns – with Ed Stockman, M.S.
I was discussing this with friends yesterday and this question came up: "Will the event be dog friendly?"
This is a public school, so only registered guide dogs are allowed.
