November 27 (Thursday), 2 - 5 p.m.
ProtoHUB, 458 Keawe St, Honolulu
Still thinking about your Thanksgiving Day plans? If so, consider coming to the the Transition Oahu potluck. This year we'll be at ProtoHUB, the new co-working / innovation space in Kakaako.
Arrive between 2-2:30 and listen to music and mingle while dishes are arranged for serving. We'll do a welcome & intro about 2:45 and start the potluck at 3.
Transition Mapping: In addition to sharing food and conversation, we'll introduce a new project to literally put Transition and sharing-related resources on the map -- for example, CSA farms, eat-local restaurants, co-working locations, community kitchens, DIY educators, etc. Can you picture an app for that? We'd love your input and energies as we get the project rolling.
Tune into HPR-2's Bytemarks Cafe on Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. (KIPO – 89.3 FM). David Atcheson of Transition Oahu will be on to discuss the project.
What should I bring?
Please bring your own own re-usable eating and serving ware to minimize waste. We'll have access to the kitchen at ProtoHUB for prepping/washing up.
We are encouraging plant-based dishes and offerings. Transition Oahu and Positive Media Hawaii recently hosted a screening ofCowspiracy. This highly recommended film makes a persuasive case for the myriad of benefits that would result from moving to a plant-based diet, including greatly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, food sustainability, and better health for people, land, and water. Our potluck can be an event that, in its own small way, encourages our society in that direction.
If you'd like some ideas for dishes, we've pulled together a few resources:
- Quick and easy vegan recipes on Oh She Glows »
- Tofu Turkey on the Down to Earth site »
- Vegan Thanksgiving recipes on VegKitchen »
- 32 Vegan Thanksgiving recipes on BuzzFeed »
Do whatever works for you and we'll look forward to seeing you! The event is free but donations to help pay for the space will be gratefully accepted.
