Earth is pretty OK. It has a bunch of air we can breathe, water we can drink and food we can eat. And until we can find a habitable exosolar planet to colonize (fingers crossed for you, Kepler-442b!), it’s pretty much the only place we can live. Each year, the Vegetarians of Central Florida group (also known for their annual VegFest) gets together to throw basically a big “thank you” party for Earth with food, music and tons of activities. This year, look for a lot of food-centric activities and speakers, including tasty cooking demos, and keep an eye out for Ibex Puppetry, who are putting together a bunch of puppets for an Endangered Species Parade. If that sounds like something you’d like to capture for posterity, join Thomas Thorspecken for the World Wide SketchCrawl from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., then follow him to Fashion Square Mall to sketch another cool event happening this Saturday. Another thing we like about this little corner of Earth? There’s always tons to do.
