March 19: VINE Sanctuary hosts free vegan potluck

VINE Sanctuary hosts its free Vernal Equinox Potluck from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, at the Springfield Community Center, 139 Main St. in Springfield. The public is invited and is asked to bring a vegan dish to share.

Vegan food is free from all animal products such as meat, dairy, or eggs. If that’s not possible, VINE’s potlucks always have plenty food so anyone can attend, even if they cannot bring something to share.

Celebrate Growing Together with VINE’s first-ever seed swap. Experienced gardeners in the community will have seeds to share along with advice for both new and veteran gardeners.

VINE Sanctuary is a non-profit farmed animal refuge based in Springfield. More than 600 animals, including birds and cows seized by authorities in cases of extreme cruelty or neglect, live at the 100+ acre sanctuary, half of which is maintained as a wildlife refuge. To learn more, visit, or e-mail
