    3. Wellington – Raw Potluck @ Brooklyn Community Centre
      6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      This is a great opportunity for those new to raw food to try it out and for those of you already hooked to indulge yourselves. Though you may think raw is all about salads, you’d be surprised. Look some dishes up on the internet and get preparing (no cooking in raw!)

      As always at our events – food to be vegan only and gluten free is always appreciated too.

      Volunteers wanted – we need help setting up the event and packing away afterwards – if you can help please be at the venue at 5pm. Thanks!

      Please contact Lyndsay at eventswellington@gmail.com to let us know if you can help.
