Looking for Support in Healthy Veg Lifestyle?

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

One of the goals of Bay Area Vegetarians is to support and connect the veg*n community, as plant-eaters are still a minority.  Sometimes it can range from irritating to frustrating to daunting or even overwhelming to live in a flesh-eating world, particularly for those who are new to veg*nism or new to the area.  Note: veg*n is shorthand for both vegan and vegetarian

We’re gardeners, planting the seeds of compassion and good health for the next crop of vegans and vegetarians.
