Vegan Potluck Meet ‘N Greet!

Baby rats gathered for a vegan meal at the Rhododendron Gardens in Portland.

This Saturday is a Vegan Potluck Meet ‘N Greet! It is all about connecting with other vegans and eating good food so it should be fun and yummy! There will be different activities which I know nothing about, but I am excited to see what it will be. I want tons of people to come since I’d love more interaction with other vegans. And the more people, the more food options!

Details: Saturday, May 30th from 6pm-8pm at Sunnyside United Methodist Church (3520 SE Yamhill St in Portland, OR).

This event is put on by Try Vegan PDX. This is a local organization which puts on Try Vegan Week which will be in August this year. The organization offers vegan mentorship and resources for the new and old to the vegan lifestyle (or even those just thinking about it). Get involved! Become a mentor, help with planning, or become vegan!

Those baby rats are so adorable. How do you take such amazing shots? If I even see something as photo-worthy as these little guys, I'd never have my camera ready in time.

That photo was taken at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens which is a beautiful park in Portland. It is along a large pond so there are a lot of ducks and other birds, rats, squirrels and more. I usually go there alone so I am able to take my time and listen for things I can't see. When I heard the rats and saw small glimpses of them, I sat and waited. Baby animals tend to be curious so I knew if was just a matter of time until they peeped out. I also get really lucky with animal encounters.
