COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH – “POWERFOODS” (12/5/19) 12:00 pm
COOKING PLANT BASED FOR HEALTH – “POWERFOODS” (12/5/19)
May 12 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Changing our eating patterns to include just one plant based meal a day can make measurable improvements to our health and wellbeing.  Those eating healthy vegan or vegetarian diets fare better than those eating even a healthy omnivorous diet. This series of Workshops show how to make the change to a more plant-based diet with simple and delicious recipes, shopping tips and support, to improve your diet for health and longevity. Anni Turnbull is a passionate advocate for the health benefits of plants, having completed a Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition through E-Cornell University. Over the next 4 Workshops (second Saturday of each month), Anni will entice you with the delicious flavours and textures plant based cooking offers.  Workshop No.2: “POWERFOODS” for heart health and healthy eating at any age. Sunday 12 May 2019 from 12pm to 2pm Enjoy eating what you’ve created!

Community Sharing Feast
May 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
EVENT CANCELLED Quercus Beechworth believes sharing a meal helps bring people in our community together. Meals are prepared and served in the spirit of co-operation by community volunteers with people coming together to share a meal and engage in conversation. The Community Sharing Feast is a way for residents, both young and old or new to the area to meet up with people they know or make new friends. Take the night off from cooking to enjoy a free and nutritious meal open to all the community. We use produce from the community food garden and donated food from the Albury/Wodonga Regional FoodShare for the feast. Community Sharing Feast is an alcohol free event.  Bookings are essential so make sure you book early to avoid missing out. Dates are available on our Online Calendar, at the Quercus Community Bookshop. Bookings are essential by calling us on 03 5728 2386 or clicking here for bookings
