Earth Day Events Coming Up!

Even though New Leaf thinks every day is  "Earth Day"  (of course !) we  do like to participate in festivals that highlight our connections to the planet, and spread the good vegan word :)   We will be at  two awesome celebrations this month.   The first one is Valley Earthfest, in Berryville , Va. on the 18th, organized by the indefatigable  Cheryl Ash.  In it's 3rd year, this event combines heart felt , grassroots exhibits and vendors with fantastic music and a small town, family-oriented feeling.  Jocelyn, of Vegan Family Values fame, will be there with her family to help reassure folks that, yes, you can raise awesome, healthy vegan children !
We are also planning to join in on  the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale that day with yummy vegan baked goods !

The other event, Earthday@Loudoun is happening the following weekend on Sunday the 25th, outside of Leesburg , Va.  This will be its second year, and if it is anything like it's first year, they should expect several thousand enthusiastic people to visit and learn what they can do to lighten our footprint on the planet while having fun.  Lori Seidmeyer and Oya Simpson team up and bring together lots of diverse vendors and exhibitors to satisfy just about everyone...and New Leaf is honored to be one of them!

Look for our tent at both events, it'll be packed with free information on how easy, delicious and Earth-friendly going vegan is, as well as nice people to answer questions, and a chance to win a free vegan cookbook  !
