VeganEarth/EarthSave Cincinnati has been going for 25
years now. Our monthly potlucks and holiday parties,
and excellent programs, have brought together a diverse
community of people from around the area to learn about and share the benefits of a vegan diet and meet like-
minded others. We've presented nationally known speakers, including Will Tuttle, Brian Clement, Nathan Runkle, etc. as well as prominent local leaders like Larry Falkin, director of Cincinnati’s Office of Environment and Sustainability; John Sniegoki, professor of ethics and peace and justice studies at Xavier
University; SAEN’s Michael Budkie; Permaculture’s
Braden Trauth; LoveForce’s Aaron Suttschenko; Turner
Farm’s Peter Huttinger; documentary filmmaker Andrea
Torrice...and just this summer, Michelle Dillingham,
Cincinnati Community Shares’ CEO, addressed us.
We’ve also participated in numerous festivals
throughout the years, including the original CompassionFest in 2002, VegFests, locally and regionally, and just this April produced Vegan Earth Day 2019 Cincinnati, just the third Vegan Earth Day worldwide. 25 years ago the word vegan was like a foreign word; few people understood what it was and even fewer
followed the diet. Now nearly everyone has heard of it
(even if some still are confused as to its exact meaning,
or even how to pronounce it), many restaurants show
vegan options on their menus and a significant
percentage of the population consider themselves
vegans. There are so many websites, national
organizations and articles online about the benefits of the
diet and how to do it with literally thousands of recipes,
and buying foods that are vegan is easy compared to 20
years ago.
As an organization we are at a crossroads. Just
teaching/sharing ways to eat that are healthful is not
what is really needed at this time. Because of climate
change the sustainability issue of a vegan diet is
crucially important, and of course the issue of
compassion to animals will always be relevant until the
time comes when we stop killing them for food.
Unfortunately, many of the people who were so
instrumental in keeping VeganEarth going are no longer
with us or no longer able to devote the time they used to.
If we are to continue having a VeganEarth group we
need to have new, active members to help lead the
group with new ideas and goals.
Some us who continue involvement would
like to see VeganEarth become a more activist group.
No more potlucks? We also can do projects like planting
fruit trees as we recently did in Burnet Woods (we
received $300 towards those and additional plantings).
There are many ways we can promote veganism in

Very Sad News:
Mary Ann Lederer passed away Easter Sunday April 21st, 2019 at 7:30 pm at the age of 77. Mary Ann was the life blood of this organization for many, many years. The nurse who was with her at the time of her passing said that she appeared peaceful. Her body, which experienced so much pain, is now at rest, and her mind is free.

Her tribute page on this site is here:MARY ANN LEDERER

The October 2018 Potluck featured a talk by Mike Fremont. Mike is a 96yr old inspiration for plant based eating. At the age of 72 Mike was diagnosed with stage 4 colo/rectal cancer and told he had 3 mos to get his affairs in order. Based on a book his son had given him, he decided to decline the chemo/radiation and put his life in the hands of good nutrition. He started a macrobiotic diet, the tumor shrank and the metasasis disappeared. He began running and enjoyed it a lot. His health thrived and he was competitive in his age group in the marathons he entered and during his 80's he set 6 world records in the marathon and half marathon in his age group. He also enjoyed marathon canoe racing and was very competitive in that sport as well. Mike has been a champion of the plant based diet throughout his healing years. I am sure you will enjoy hearing his story at the October Potluck. I had the chance to film an interview with Mike a couple years ago. You can watch that HERE

Our September 2018 Potluck featured a nice food prep demo by raw chef Susan Cooney. Watch the hour long presentation HERE.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
-Mahatma Ghandi

Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
-Albert Einstein

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings we are still savages.
-Thomas Edison
