Tickets for Vegan Wine and Cheese!

Tickets are on sale now for our vegan wine and cheese tasting!  Join us on October 5th as we feature local wine from Klickitat Canyon Winery, and pair it with delectable vegan
cheeses and fruit.  Klickitat Canyon is an eco-friendly winery located in Stevenson, Washington on the Columbia River Gorge.  All of their wines are 100% vegan.  From barnivore.com:

“All of our wines are completely vegan without any additives or chemistry at all. Our wines are unfiltered and living. They contain beneficial microbes for a healthy lifestyle. We ferment our grapes on their native yeasts and use a very sustainable form of agriculture called “Eco-dynamic Agriculture”. With this methodology we run the vineyard as if it were part of the native ecosystem. We time activities so as not to disturb ground-nesting birds and we plant native flora among our vines. This form of agriculture allows us to rely on nature’s natural forms of pest-control for our benefit and create a harmonious relationship with our land.”

Free Presentation to Benefit Cupid’s Landing!

I have some very exciting news to share! On Saturday, July 9th, Dr. Joanne Kong will be in Tacoma to give a joint presentation with Bonney Lake’s Paula Furner called: “The Power of Plant-Based Eating: The Most Important Presentation You Will Ever Hear!” This is a free presentation on how eating a greener diet can benefit your health and the planet. It will take place at Marlene’s Market and Deli in Tacoma from 10am-12pm. Donations will be accepted to support Cupid’s Landing! There will even be some goodies to give away to those who donate.

Dr. Joanne Kong is a vegan, environmental activist, and professor at the University of Richmond, VA. She gives presentations around the country for colleges and community groups. During this presentation, Dr. Kong and Paula will discuss “the critical impacts that animal agriculture and meat consumption have upon the environment, the other living beings with whom we share the planet, and our health. Our perceptions in regards to animals and diet, shaped by factors such as habit, culture, and social conditioning, have distanced us from the unnecessary suffering of billions of animals killed every year for food. Going greener with your diet is an opportunity to become more consciously aware of our choices and connections to the world around us, and rekindle the center of kindness and compassion that resides within each and every one of us.”

This is an exciting opportunity that will take our fundraising, networking, and spreading the word about Cupid’s Landing to the next level. All of the fundraising thus far has taken place in my living room while giving casual vegan cooking demos. With this presentation, we will reach a larger audience comprised of people who have never heard of Cupid’s Landing before, at a professional venue with experienced and well educated presenters.  To say I am excited is an understatement!

Speaking of cooking demos, the next one will take place this Friday, June 10th at 1pm.  This time we will explore fermentation!  Pickles, kimchi, sour beets, and kombucha are all on the menu.  I would love to see you at both of these events!  If you have questions, feel free to contact me.  Spread the word, and bring a friend!
