Sun, Oct 20, 2019 12:00 PM - Sun, Oct 20, 2019 2:30 PM @ Glendale Branch | Indianapolis Public Library

Join us for another whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) pitch-in on Sunday, October 20! A WFPB diet promotes good health. Please bring a dish for the pitch-in that is free from all animal products (100% vegan) and contains no oil. Some salt and sweetener is fine. Please also bring a copy of your recipe or a list of the ingredients used in your dish.

Because this Meetup is 100% vegan, all dishes should contain NO animals or animal products (no honey, no dairy, no eggs, no gelatin, no animals, no animal byproducts).

For recipe ideas, check out thevegan8.com, straightupfood.com, or happyherbivore.com.

Are you interested in attending, but aren’t sure what to bring to a WFPB, no-oil Meetup? Just bring yourself and we will share food and ideas with you! But don’t forget to RSVP that you are going, so we know how many people to expect.

Want more information on a WFPB diet? Watch Forks Over Knives (available on Netflix) and PlantPure Nation (now available on YouTube). Also check out the work of Dr. Michael Greger, M.D. (NutritionFacts.org), Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D. (Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease), Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. (The China Study), Dr. John McDougall, M.D. (DrMcDougall.com and several books), and Dr. Neal Barnard, M.D. (PCRM.org and many books).

See you in October!

Apna Kitchen, formerly Spice Nation, is offering us a totally vegan buffet including vegan tea, dosas, fruit, dessert and much more. The owner is excited to offer this buffet geared to our community. The food was a little spicy in the beginning, but I spoke with the chef and it will now be toned down for us. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns I can pass along because the owner and chef are really trying to please us. The owner said that we can order off the menu anything that you feel is missing and they will bring that dish to the table. You can also let me know prior to the Meetup what dishes you would like on the buffet and I will pass the info onto him so he will include them. Price is now $10.99.

Tue, Sep 10, 2019 6:30 PM - Tue, Sep 10, 2019 8:00 PM @ Rabble Coffee

Cooking vegan food is just as easy as what you’re familiar with already. This class will go over how to shop vegan as a key first step. Then we will move on to going over cooking in the kitchen! We will finish the class with how to substitute ingredients to make any meal vegan. Students will be sent home with some well-loved recipes. This is a discussion based class, with no actual cooking happening.

Meg loves making vegan lunches for their partner to take to work. They have 3 cats, but their favorite is a big black tomcat named Binx. Besides cooking, they love to knit and lift weights.

Barter Items: Magnets, children’s books, non perishable food to donate

Thu, Sep 05, 2019 11:00 AM - Sun, Sep 08, 2019 11:00 PM @ Sage Valley

(Event Photo Credit: Phoebe Wahl)
We are excited to be hosting our very first gathering focused on celebrating family at Sage Valley! After a summer of fun and adventure, we will reunite before the slow-down of fall begins. Together we will get grounded, circle around the fire, laugh and play, and nurture the connections we’ve made- both old and new!

Sage Valley is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in the Wabash River valley of southern Indiana. All proceeds will go into creating the event and growing the projects at Sage Valley. As an organization, Sage Valley operates as an education and events center as well as an eco-village. Donations of time, resources, or monetary energy beyond the suggested donation are deeply appreciated ♥

Suggested donation to camp for this entire event is on a sliding scale starting at a suggested $33 per adult, plus a suggested item to donate to Dharma Greens Vegan Kitchen (which provides free meals during the entire event). Day passes are available with a give-what-you-can donation. Children 15 years old and under require no admission donation. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. We do accept alternatives to monetary donations and our list of accepted items can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lXlLmt3BiOfK6FckOlQ8j5zSouwGEaDCURkqN_Mzivs/edit?usp=sharing

There will be co-creative workshops, drum circles, group meditation, live music, vending, sacred ritual and ceremony, community building projects, and much more!

FAQs

➸GATE HOURS

The gate will officially open at 11 am on Thursday, September 5th, 2019. Early entry will ONLY be allowed for registered and approved volunteers (see info below about volunteer opportunities). The gate will be closed at 9 pm each night to ensure safety. No entry into the event will be allowed after 9 pm. DRIVE SLOW when approaching the gate, the road is curvy at the gate entry and on a hill! No one will be allowed to enter without an admission donation and this can be done in advance or at the gate. Be sure to bring proof of your online donation if contributed in advance.

➸WHY MONETARY DONATION? WHY FOOD DONATION?

Sage Valley is a non-profit and an eco-village where people live. Admission and kitchen donation are required for entry to ensure we are all contributing to the collective.100% of the donations will go back into creating the most magical events we can now and in the future, as well as furthering charitable projects at Sage Valley. Hosting a gathering of this magnitude takes resources and funding. Our goal is to provide as much as we can and do it in a sustainable way. Donations can be made online and at the gate. If you find the suggested minimum donation unaffordable, there will be VOLUNTEER opportunities so that you may give back through service rather than monetary giving. We also encourage creative alternative donations for admission. A list of acceptable donation items can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lXlLmt3BiOfK6FckOlQ8j5zSouwGEaDCURkqN_Mzivs/edit?usp=sharing IMPORTANT NOTE: Everyone entering the event grounds will need a donation or volunteer position. Regardless of weather, changes to your schedule, personal choices, sickness, family emergencies or any other reason, all ONLINE DONATIONS ARE FINAL, 100% NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-RETURNABLE. By donating you understand & agree to all the information provided on the donation/ticket website. Tickets are however transferable & you are encouraged to gift your ticket if circumstances arise where you cannot make the event. See the sections about Volunteer Opportunities and Donation on the FAQs for more information.

➸DONATION

This event requires a MINIMUM sliding scale admission donation of $33 per person. While that entry fee will help make this event happen, any additional donations are joyously WELCOMED! We want to make this gathering as beautiful and healing as possible, but we need your help! Even if you cannot attend the event, you may still donate through the ticket website. If you find yourself in a position of abundance and feel called to share with the Tribe, we will put those funds to good use! In addition, if you wish to sponsor a particular project with materials or monetary contributions so you can directly see the results of your generosity, we will be forever grateful! Here are some projects needing funding: building more/better footbridges for trails, building onto the medicine wheel sacred fire, canopies or booth for gate entry, better solar lighting for gate entry, providing eco-friendly craft materials for kid village, feeding the masses with clean vegan whole foods, building a permanent workshop space, building a family table, building solar showers, roofing the dining space. If you wish to donate, you may do so on the ticket website by selecting the donate option or by donating at the gate. This event is powered by YOU!

➸VOLUNTEER

*If you wish to volunteer this year for admission and this is your first time, you must be able to arrive Wednesday for a brief volunteer orientation* Volunteer opportunities are always available for anyone who cannot afford the suggested minimum admission donation or who feel called to serve the Tribe. Registration form will be posted soon!

➸CAMPING, RVs & BUSES

This is a PRIMITIVE camping event with NO HOOKUPS or electric available. Sage Valley intends to remain off grid. There will be several camping areas designed to meet everyone’s needs and to create an intimate environment. There will be limited car camping available in some pasture areas for people who need or prefer that. There will be a family camping section next to the kid village. There will also be forest camping, but that will require gear to be hiked in. RVs and Buses will be allowed in the car camping sections. Please be aware that this is farm pasture terrain.

➸VENDORS

Come one and come all vending! We encourage vending of your DIY and homemade crafts, art, services, foods, and more! There is no fee but it is a first come, first serve vending space.

➸SECURITY & SAFETY

This is primarily a self-regulated event attendees are expected to speak out and stand up for what is right. Don’t be a jerk, bring good vibes, and always remember that LOVE is the answer. However, appointed Peace Keepers will be available throughout the event to ensure everyone’s safety. We take care of each other and strive to create a SAFE SPACE for all! Please be sure to respect each other and listen.

➸HANDICAP ACCESSIBILITY

We will do everything we can to make this event accessible. There will be parking within walking distance from the main event area. However, the grounds are not designed for handicap accessibility. If you have any special needs to be considered, please reach out to the event organizers so that we may try our best to accommodate you. NOTE: The event grounds are typical of Indiana farm terrain. Trails & foot paths are often curvy, rough, grassy & hard to maneuver for some. Therefore we do not consider this land to be accessible for all.

➸LEAVE-NO-TRACE

This is a LEAVE-NO-TRACE event! It’s simple: leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. Pack it in and pack it out. This property is a place where people live, treat it the way you would want others to treat your own home. If you see others not honoring the LEAVE-NO-TRACE motto take some time to explain to them why it’s important & nicely ask them to pick up after themselves. Recycle bins will be available, please be sure to use them! We ask that all trash brought onto the land is also carried off of the land. Trash removal costs us money, uses resources, energy, and time. Attendees found disrupting the natural beauty of the event farm will be removed from the grounds without refund, we are serious here folks!

➸EARTH FRIENDLY

Only biodegradable and earth friendly soaps, cleaners, and chemicals should be used at Sage Valley. Let us all be kind to the delicate eco-systems around us. Harmful chemicals can leach into the water systems surrounding us and create a ripple effect with a big impact.

➸SMOKING and TOBACCO USE

Cigarette butts should be properly disposed of and never left on the ground. Smoking should be done away from others and outside of any sacred spaces or family spaces. Ceremonial tobacco use is respectfully permitted within sacred spaces.

➸SACRED FIRE

The main sacred fire should be honored, cared for, and enjoyed with respect. Entry into this space should be mindful. Offerings to the fire are encouraged and permitted items include tobacco or other organic materials. Please do not cook at this fire or burn trash in it- there is a fire in the dining area that can accommodate these needs.

➸PETS

Sage Valley is not responsible for the care and well-being of pets. Pets will be allowed, but please be responsible. Take care of your pets, keep them safe, and don’t bring aggressive dogs. There are farm animals on the property, DO NOT allow pets to disturb the animals who call Sage Valley home. Pets must be up to date on veterinary care, leashed, and cared for at all times.

➸FAMILY AND KIDS

This gathering and Sage Valley is a very family and kid friendly space. There will be a family camping section and Kid Village will have many activities for children. Children age 15 and younger require no admission donation! Please be aware that we encourage freedom of expression at this event.

These events are a great way to meet others in the PEAK community, be of service to animals, and be a part of building PEAK 5.0. We celebrate our 1 year anniversary in our new property in April.

We’ll spend some time, in the beginning, connecting and grounding, work on a few projects, enjoy a variety of vegan dishes, and meet a few residents.

Each Workday we’ll have a list of possible projects depending on priorities and weathers. Tasks include things like painting, trimming bushes, mowing, scooping poop, and more.

You will need to reserve your spot, as we limit the size to 10 each month.

Once you’ve signed up you’ll receive a reminder email Thursday before the workday with weather/info updates too.

Fri, Jun 14, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Jun 14, 2019 8:00 PM @ Indianapolis Zoo

Every year, hundreds of donors gather at the zoo for a black tie formal event to raise money for some animals while eating cows, pigs, chickens and fishes. Cognitive dissonance at its finest.

The goal is two-fold. It is a rare opportunity to speak up for farmed animals at a zoo event. We will be highlighting why it is wrong to care about one animal and kill and eat another, in addition to our general message that if you love animals we should not capture and confine them for entertainment.

We will wear formal attire just like the partygoers inside and hold a demonstration at the entrance of the zoo. Signs will be provided!

*Note, formal attire not required, I’m sure it will be a mix.

Sat, May 25, 2019 5:00 PM - Sat, May 25, 2019 7:00 PM @ Twin Lakes Recreation Center

Hey Bloomington-area veg-community! Would you like to help make a difference in the lives of rescued farm animals? This Memorial Day weekend, let US do all the cooking! We are a group of committed activists that have come together to host a dinner to benefit Indiana’s very own Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary!

Uplands PEAK is driven by their mission to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected farmed animals, educate the public to the benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle, and promote sustainability. This dinner will make it possible for PEAK to install two solar fans plus a panel to power the fans for the cows’ shelter. Their barn is not close to electricity hookups and fans in the heat of Summer are a must!

A purchased ticket gets you an all vegan buffet-style Indian dinner as well as a chance to win a gift basket in a raffle-drawing (additional raffle tickets can be purchased during the dinner)… so what are you waiting for?! Let’s come together for the animals!

Event Info:

What: All Vegan Benefit Dinner in support of Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary

When: Saturday, May 25th from 5pm to 7pm

Where: City of Bloomington Twin Lakes Recreation Center at 1700 W Bloomfield Road, Bloomington, Indiana
