    Hi Everyone, I uploaded the pictures, here's the link http://veganevents.shutterfly.c...­

      Thanks Beata, you're quite right (computing use accounts for more CO2e than airline travel, and is set to double within the decade, due in no small part to uploads and email attachments). As I've posted the link across all the groups, everyone has access to them. A future alternative would be to upload them to the group with the most RSVPs, and post a link to them on other groups (assuming privacy settings don't mean you have to be a member to view them).

      Wow you learn something new everyday! Well I definitely do not want to contribute to any more destruction! Thank you for uploading them, they're wonderful. Xx

    one dish done another on the way - leaving in about 45 min - can't wait to meet every!one - must remember tea and labels!

    November 25, 2012

  • Mia

    Hi Jess. I was thinking of putting the food out around midday or when most people get there. Hopefully that'll work out alright! See you later. Xx

    November 25, 2012

  • Jessica Stella F.

    Hello; it all sounds lovely & there should be plenty of tea I gather! :) I was just wondering, (& I should've got round to posting this earlier) but when does the Potluck start or will it just be food, & more, everywhere, all day, type thing? (e.g. don't want to miss the Pudology puds!! :-D ) Cheers, Jess :)

  • Meryl

    I am so sorry to back out last minute ... family emergency :( Will definitely come to another event soon! x

    November 24, 2012

  • Katherine

    I can probably pick up a couple of boxes of tea - can anyone else?

    1 · November 24, 2012

    • Richard Ⓥ M.

      I'll try to bring a box of Yogi Choco.

      1 · November 24, 2012

    • Gareth

      I'll bring some soya milk and sugar if that helps.

      2 · November 24, 2012

  • L.Galvin

    I think it is going to be raining tomorrow Mia so if we had to forage
    in the park it would be a very wet forage ha ha but as you,Richard
    Katherine and me will be bringing tea i think we should be fine for
    tea

    November 24, 2012

  • Mia

    I have every faith we'll have enough to drink. If not maybe we could forage in the park across the road for some nettles, make nettle tea! Xx

    2 · November 24, 2012

  • Mia

    Hi everyone. Sadly although Yogi tea had agreed to donate some boxes of tea, it hasn't arrived! What to do for drinks.... Any idea's? Xx

    November 24, 2012

    • L.Galvin

      That's a shame Richard,glad Pudology delivered to Mia okay

      November 24, 2012

    • Richard Ⓥ M.

      So annoying, as I was going to try making a paneer style curry. Vegusto staff and I will be attending the Young Indian Veg*ns' 32nd annual Christmas lunch in December and I wanted to try veganising the only non-vegan dish they serve. http://www.youngindia...­

    Hi All

    Does anyone have a nice camera or a smart phone
    and would be happy to take photos ( (i have neither).?
    Some of the companies that have donated food would like
    a few pictures so they can put them on their twitter/facebook
    pages.Thanks Everyone

    November 23, 2012

    • Katherine

      I'll bring my camera and do my best :-) I sometimes get wobble

      1 · November 24, 2012

    • L.Galvin

      Hi Beata/Katherine thank-you both for bring your camera and taking some photos for them.I really appreciate it.I'm not sure why i don't have a camera.

      November 24, 2012

  • Beata

    Hi Mia,
    What is your telephone number? Can you please let me know if you still need some food? I could make some sandwiches and maybe a cake? I've seen also that you don't have drinks, should I bring some tea bags? Will there be any place to make some tea?

    November 24, 2012

    • Mia

      Hi Beata, my number is[masked] 646. Yes all food is still welcome as it will be for all to share but please don't worry if you cannot, you don't have to bring anything to join in! xx

      November 24, 2012

    • Mia

      Oh and yes sorry, we do have tea urns for hot water. x

    have posted this on the McDougall website

    1 · November 23, 2012

    • Katherine

      Hi Storm, It's the website of Dr John McDougall who promotes a starch based low fat vegan diet. His work is similar to that of Drs Dean Ornish and Caldwell Esselstyn if you've heard of them. Most of the users on the website are in the US but there's a growing number in the UK.

    Crazy, that's 13 veg*n-related Meetup groups so far, just within the Greater London area! And I haven't even put it on the gender/profession/nationality groups, or all the raw food ones, or included fruitarians.

    Check out this list of some of the main Meetup groups, to see what I mean http://meetup.com/volentians/Lo...­

    November 22, 2012

    • Mia

      This networking is amazing, thank you! It really feels like a community on here! x

      1 · November 23, 2012

    • L.Galvin

      Yes there is a huge amount of groups.Hopefully everyone coming will either bring lots of lovely vegan food or donate some stuff to the give and take.

      November 23, 2012

  • L.Galvin

    Hi All The Vegan Tart won't be able to join us now due to personal
    circumstances so sadly we won't be having any of their lovely cakes.If anyone else can bring some yummy vegan cakes or any
    other dishes that would be great.

    November 22, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    Hoping to bring some Vegusto samples... fingers crossed... that I don't scoff them on the journey up LOL

    2 · November 22, 2012

    Hi Richard
    I've rsvped for the vegan conscious group as that's the only one
    i'm on out of those listed.

    1 · November 22, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    For what it's worth, at this late hour, I've also 'suggested' this event on the following extra groups. If anyone can help to get them announced by RSVPing, that would be great...

    http://meetup.com/VStarLondon/e...­

    http://meetup.com/Vegan-Conscio...­

    http://meetup.com/vegancooking/...­

    November 22, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    Feel free to turn up any time after 10:30am (but preferably a bit before 4pm!) and hopefully(!) you'll find people already inside.

    If you can bring something along for the vegan potluck (i.e. food to share) that would be great.

    Please include a list of all ingredients, so people can look out for potential allergens. It's also nice to name the dish :-)

    Hope to see you there (I aim to be along about noon).

    November 22, 2012

  • L.Galvin

    you are welcome Mia

    November 21, 2012

  • Mia

    wow, that was quick! I'm actually not on the vegetarian group so thank you for getting it up there! xx

    November 21, 2012

  • L.Galvin

    Hi Richard

    Always happy to help.Glad it's now announced on the veg group

    1 · November 21, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    LOL That was quick, I just returned to that veg Meetup and Linda and Neel have already helped to announce it!

    November 21, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    It's now suggested on the veg group (http://www.meetup.com/vegetaria...­), can some of you please RSVP on there too, to get it announced, as I'd imagine that it's the main target audience. Cheers

    November 21, 2012

  • Richard Ⓥ M.

    Good to see we've about 50 people attending across the Meetups and Facebook :-) Just found out I'll be one of them!

    November 21, 2012

  • Mia

    Hi, didn't want to add to the main section, just in case I changed it or deleted it! But hopefully this link will take you to the facebook event page. http://www.facebook.com/#!/even...­
    If it doesn't, the page name is 'free christmas fair.'

    November 12, 2012

    • Gareth

      Hi Mia - I live just round the corner from this school & can offer help however suits you best (storage, fridge-space....) and probably can bring some bric-a-brac and food if needed.

      November 19, 2012

    • Mia

      Hi Gareth, thats great thank you! Can you send me your email/phone no? I will contact you in the week if thats ok? x

      November 19, 2012

  • Neel

    Hey all, I work with the energy of the dolphins and whales and would be delighted to help out with holistic treatments and bring the gift of the dolphins and whales to all the vegans there :-)

    3 · November 6, 2012

    • Jessica Stella F.

      Sounds delightful! Do the dolphin's know the whimsical song from the film of 'Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy', ''So long, & thanks for all the fish??'' Sung by the lovely Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy) , the quirky imagry taken directly from the book, wherein the dolphins are 'off & out of here' just before the world is dextryed!! :) All the best, this sounds like a lovly event...I should make it! Jess :)

    I agree Mia Justfortheloveofit is great and as today is the first ever Global Sharing Day http://www.compareandshare.com/...­
    lets celebrate the Freeconomy Philosophy and websites like justfortheloveofit, Freecycle and Streetbank that are all great sharing communities.
    Although not essentially a vegan event this saturday
    there is a Streetbank ( http://www.streetbank.com­) inspired
    sharing event taking place
    https://www.facebook.com/events/...­

    1 · November 14, 2012

  • Mia

    I meant 'philosophy'!

    November 14, 2012

  • Mia

    I would like to add that this event was inspired by the 'freeconomy' philosphy as shown on the website http://www.justfortheloveofit.o...­
    It is great free-share site which I would recommend anyone to take a look at.
