December 6, 2012
very recently (month) for vegan interests, but it's been evolving and refining for some months now
6 years and in Northern Va area for 12 or so
Although I have had vegetarian ideals and diet in the past I have recently seen a change in interest in a plant based everything (economy, spirituality, ethical voice, diet). It simply made sense for me to get to veganism and a group.
I haven't had enough experience, but the people I've met have been very friendly.
