I started it. I'm a very imperfect host but trying my best on a volunteer basis to provide a wide range of plant based events for members. We have a great group of assistant organizers, too.
Among my favourites are Indigo Food, Po Kong and Sun Bo Kong, and Chau Veggiexpress.
My favourites are Axum, East is East, and Nuba.
Vegan working towards a whole foods diet.
No longer on the Board of Directors but still a member. It's a worthwhile charity to support, since no other charities seem to be educating us about the impacts of food choices on the environment.
I really enjoy conversation (food, politics, society). Not as good at small talk and banter.
Hard to generalize once a group gets above a thousand people! I especially like that this group is welcoming to non-vegetarians. We all have an awareness that our food choices impact the planet and wanting to shift to more plant based foods more often unites us. New people have sometimes felt uncomfortable seeing that the people who attend our events are all long time good friends when in fact the people they were seeing were mostly strangers! It's just that kind of group--people make friends fast because we tend to have a lot in common.
