We will meet at the Quaker meetinghouse in West Hartford to discuss “*Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants*” by vegan author Jane Goodall, and a selection from this year’s project book, *Eat Plants, B*tch: 91 Vegan Recipes That Will Blow Your Meat-Loving Mind* by Pinky Cole.
☕️ Doors open at 2:45 for socializing and refreshments. 🧁
You are welcome to bring a vegan snack (optional).
Coffee and tea will be provided.
**About the book:**
*SEEDS OF HOPE takes us from Goodall’s home in England to her home-away-from-home in Africa, deep inside the Gombe forest, where she and the chimpanzees are enchanted by the fig and plum trees they encounter.*
*She introduces us to botanists around the world, as well as places where hope for plants can be found, such as The Millennium Seed Bank. She shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.*
*Looking at the world as an adventurer, scientist, and devotee of sustainable foods and gardening–and setting forth simple goals we can all take to protect the plants around us–Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.*
Hope to see you then!
