Try Vegan Week 2009

A Portland veg-support group is prepping for its second annual pro-vegan week.

For those who have ever been curious about making the transition to veganism, but haven’t known quite what to do, you may be in luck. Try Vegan PDX, a vegan outreach program based in Portland, Ore., is gearing up for its second annual Try Vegan Week. Starting August 15, veg curious Portlanders can attend numerous talks about topics ranging from cooking without dairy to raw foods, join other vegans for barbecues, brunches, and potlucks, and even partake in a bar crawl. What makes this program a standout is that Try Vegan PDX will pair any person who needs a little help going veg with a seasoned vegan pro. Check out Try Vegan’s website for the details on Try Vegan Week 2009, and get ready for a veg-tastic time. One try never hurt anyone.
