How did you hear about "Vegan Life Colorado" meetup group?

Search of Meetup groups. I was about to start one on my own if I couldn't find a group that fit.

What draws you to a vegan group? (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)

Watched "Forks Over Knives" in January 2012 and my husband and I went vegan the next day. Ironically, we began watching it, not knowing what it was really about, while eating our last steak ;-) Since then we have watched many more documentaries and books about the importance of this lifestyle. Never looked back. I enrolled in Cornell's Plant Based Nutrition courses by T. Colin Campbell and received my Certification in May 2013.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in, if you have anything specific you would like to do (note that our members are welcome to suggest and schedule vegan friendly events for consideration by our organizers)?

Group dinners at vegan friendly restaurants, potlucks to try new foods/recipes, and vegan discussion groups. Add another potluck in south metro Denver. Create a group of knowledgeable vegans to consult with restaurants on menus.

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!



My husband and I are commited to a healthy vegan lifestyle. We both teach and coach others to make healthy choices. He is a psychologist. I hold a Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition, 2013, T. Colin Campbell Foundation, Cornell University/eCornell

What Bonnie Griffin K. is saying about this Meetup Group

If you have never attended a cooking class at The Garden, you owe it to yourself to go to one soon. Aleece is great at making everyone feel welcome and when you leave you have the feeling you have learned something new that you can actually implement!
