My objective is to help foster a community which keeps us, the planet, and all it's creatures happy and healthy. My name is Paola and I moved here from Miami which has more veg meetups than you can swing a block of tofu at. I've been vegan for five years, and my boyfriend Jesse has been vegan since February of 2014. It's crazy that it's generally easier to eat vegan in Gainesville than in Miami yet we have only one veg group (http://veg4lifegainesville.com/) with their only objective being running a very successful monthly potluck. I saw the demand, so I decided to cut a tiny chunk from my college life budget to pay the meetup dues and any other expenses. This meetup is, and always will be, free to join and participate in. See you at our next get together c:
