Upcoming events: raw potluck & workshops

Johannesburg raw potluck, March 2011

Sorry for the late notice, but this month’s raw potluck will be tomorrow- Thursday, May 5th, at Leafy Greens Cafe in Muldersdrift. For those who don’t know, the raw potluck is a chance to test (or showcase) your raw food preparation skills, taste loads of raw dishes, meet other people interested in raw food and discuss a raw-relevant topic. This month, I will be sharing my experiences of traveling raw. I’m sure loads of other people have lots of funny and useful stories to share on this topic as well, so please do come. You just need to bring a raw vegan dish to share and R20 for the venue.

The address of Leafy Greens cafe is: Plot 328 Rocky Ridge Rd, Muldersdrift. Off Beyers Naude Drive, opposite Garden World Nursery @ Casalinga Restaurant.

Also, we’ve had some interest from people in Pretoria and Durban and are considering offering raw workshops there. To do so we’ll need a critical mass of people (ideally 8-10) as well as a venue. If you’re keen, please do get in touch.
