VegRehoboth to host plant-based eating book event May 23

May 19, 2023

VegRehoboth will host an author event with Dorothy Greet from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 23, at Lewes Public Library. Greet will sign copies of her new book, “Go Veg with Class.”

Admission is free and all are welcome; registration is requested at

Indigo restaurant will offer delicious appetizers, and sweet treats prepared by Greet and a special mystery baker will be served. A select few Rehoboth Beach VegFest exhibitors will also share their products.   

VegRehoboth provides education, advocacy and support to those exploring and incorporating a plant-based lifestyle into their routine. “Some are turning to eating more plant-based for their health; others out of their concern for the environment and the animals,” said Patricia Haddock, VegRehoboth cofounder and former president.

For more than 10 years, until it was sidelined by COVID, VegRehoboth offered numerous restaurant happy hours, book and film discussions, a yearly ThanksLiving alternative feast, a VegWinterFest, and its summertime flagship event, Rehoboth Beach VegFest, with three days of activities and a daylong festival. 

“What a joy to be together again in person,” said Tara Sheldon, VegRehoboth president and cofounder. “Dorothy is such an ardent supporter of plant-based living based on her own profound healing experience. She is the perfect host to continue the conversation on the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.”

Greet, granddaughter of a dairy farmer, had a heart attack at 70.  A crucial part of her recovery was switching to plant-based foods. Changing what she ate had dramatic effects: Her dangerously high blood pressure dropped to normal, and she lost 45 pounds. Greet became a passionate advocate for eating plant-based whole foods. She has been blogging via the Cape Gazette for several years, and a compilation of her blogs is the basis for her book, “Go Veg with Class.”
