I'm a vegan from the Philadelphia area. Would love to meet other folks interested in environmental and health topics.

What are your reasons for joining the group? (optional)

I plan to visit Charleston this Spring and would love to get to know some of the locals. My husband, who is also vegan, will be with me and would also like to join in.

Share your story, why did you go vegan/vegetarian? How long has it been? (optional)

A little over 2 years ago, I read the book Veganist by Kathy Freston, which I highly recommend. By the end of the book, I decided to become a vegetarian and only prepare vegan foods at home. About a year later, I decided to eat completely plant-based. It wasn't until I became a vegetarian that I really learned how to cook, and now I absolutely love finding new plant-based cheeses at the store and dining out for plant-based foods.

What is your favorite place to dine out, and your favorite meal there? (optional)

My favorite place to dine out is Great Sage in Clarksville, MD. It's hard to choose a favorite item, but I really love their hearts of palm "crab cakes" and their sweet potato salad. It's about a 2 hour drive from Philadelphia, which is a very veg-friendly city and has a ton of my other favorite spots including Vedge, Blackbird Pizza, Blue Sage, HipCityVeg and Doc Bakers Farmulations.

Would you be interested in being a Co-Organizer of this Meetup Group? (optional)

No thank you. I'm not a Charleston local!

    Hi Erin. Welcome to the group. I look forward to meeting you while you're in town. One of our group organizers, Cherie, is also from Philly. You should have received an email with local veg resources when you joined. If not, I can resend it! :)
