1) LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Hello Everyone,

Summer is my most favorite season, largely due to the greater variety of produce available in my current area during the Summer months. The change of season allows us to have access to Farmer's Markets and "Pick Your Own Produce" farms. As a matter of fact, one of my most favorite activities of Summer is to go and pick my own produce from one of the farms that allow it. The wonderful thing is that these farms are located all over the world. Location of the farm and month of visit will determine what produce is available. It is best practice to call the farm to confirm hours and ensure crop availability. You can find a "Pick Your Own" farm, obtain picking tips, recipes, and even information about canning and freezing at
http: pickyourown.org ] .

7) CHILD GENIUS SHOW

We received a letter from Shed Media about the show Child Genius.

I am writing to you from Shed Media, the TV production company behind 'Child Genius', 'Super Nanny' and the genealogy series 'Who Do You Think You Are'. We are currently developing a second season of Child Genius - the popular docu-series that features some of America's most gifted children and their Providing the framework to the series will be the children's involvement in a challenging nationwide academic competition. We are now looking for highly gifted/profoundly gifted children (aged 8-12) who would be interested to participate. The documentary series will profile children with exceptional IQs that often have abilities and interests far beyond their years. Parents will have a chance to talk about how their child's extraordinary intelligence affects their daily lives and about some of the challenges they have faced in finding the right educational path for their child. The rigorous competition will take place during the summer vacation (July/early Aug). The winner will receive a substantial contribution to their college fund. The series will be aired on Lifetime. We are particularly interested in featuring an all-vegetarian/vegan family as we feel it would be a great lifestyle to represent on TV.

8) PAUL'S PLACE BOOTH

By Navaal Mahdi

On Saturday, April 25th, Paul's Place invited the VRG to set up an outreach booth in Southwest Baltimore. This was the first outreach event I attended with The Vegetarian Resource Group, and I was accompanied by volunteer Matt Baker, and staff member Nina Casalena.

I was pleasantly surprised while working at this booth; it was a chilly, cloudy day and we were worried that not many people would show up to the event. The turnout was great considering the weather, and many local residents were interested in learning about how they could incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diets. Many people expressed that they knew someone who had recently become vegetarian, and they were curious about the impact a vegan diet has on not only a person's physical health, but their mental health as well. Though I am not a professional, because I recently became vegan I was able to provide people with honest insight about the positive changes in my mood and energy levels. A few people were intrigued by this so much that they said they would try using more vegetarian recipes from the Vegetarian Journals we distributed, and we encouraged many people to start taking smaller steps in the right direction so they could one day make bigger changes more easily.

Another great part of working at this booth was the fact that we were able to reach people from low-income backgrounds who typically would not have access to the information we had to offer. Many showed interest in the Vegetarian Journals, and in the multiple pamphlets about vegetarian and vegan nutrition we had to offer. Some locals were also excited about being able to sign up for our newsletter emailing service.

I'm excited to continue working with the VRG at outreach booths this summer to continue spreading awareness about the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle!

To volunteer at VRG outreach booths, please contact Nina at vrg@vrg.org

9) ADVOCATE FOR ANIMALS STUDY OPPORTUNITY

  • Do you volunteer with a rescue organization?
  • Are you feeding feral colonies in your neighborhood or workplace?
  • Do you leaflet about vegetarianism?
  • Are your protesting outside McDonalds?
  • Are you involved in TNR?
  • Do you work at an animal-focused organization?

If any of these activities fit you - or others not mentioned involved in animal well-being - then I would be interested in talking with you.

I need people to participate in a study of animal advocates and activists. The survey is found at: [ http://AdvocatesForAnimalsStudy.weebly.com ]

Optional follow-up interviews will be done through Skype, email, on the phone or in-person.

The goal of the study is to look at why we became involved in this work, what we actually do for animals, what our goals are in terms of ending animal suffering, and who we, as advocates and activists, are.

The book will discuss our society's love for animals (but where we still harm them), how volunteers and staff of animal organizations step up where laws fall short, how we individually do or don't connect animal issues to other societal problems, how this work impacts our lives, and what our societal vision is regarding animal well-being.

About the researcher: I have volunteered in different capacities for animal rescue organizations including cat sanctuary care work, adoption work, fundraising, education, and engaged in protests at the circus, fur stores, opposing factory farming, etc. for many decades. I have been a vegan for over 30 years. I am a sociologist and teach at a community college. Animal rights is my primary focus, but I have been an activist around domestic and sexual violence, homelessness, immigrant rights, people in prison, and other social justice issues.

10) MEAT CONSUMPTION ATTITUDE SURVEY

I'm a grad student at the University of Edinburgh studying animal behaviour and welfare. My dissertation is looking at attitudes toward farmed animals and their welfare by different dietary groups (meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans). I was wondering if it would be possible to post the link to my survey on this site?
