Vegans for animal rights. Nothing fancy, like minded vegans get together and have some animal friendly food and drinks in the area. Good, lively conversation about whatever comes up with nonjudgmental vegans and their friends who love animals and want the best for them. Make connections with others and just relax. No pressure vibe. Live, love learn & peace.
“[t]he principle of the emancipation of animals from exploitation by man...to seek an end to the use of animals by man for food, commodities, work, hunting, vivisection, and by all other uses involving exploitation of animal life by man”. Leslie J. Cross 1948 Vegan Society
Like veganic, organic crops are grown without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides or manmade fertilizers. They are not genetically modiﬁed in any way, nor subjected to radiation or chemical processing. Artificial compounds are not added to organic food items. Organic is the way mankind was always accustomed to farming, until comparatively recently.
Yet although organic crops are grown without the use of chemicals, an organic certification does allow farmers to use animal waste, including blood meal and bone meal, to fertilize fields. Some organic farms purchase these animal by-products from slaughterhouses and other non-organic sources. The animals have been given antibiotics and hormones throughout their lives, and exposed to pesticides and other chemicals.
Veganic farms use only plant-based fertilizers, together with smart growing techniques such as alternating crops over time to build nutrients in the soil. Veganic is a step beyond organic — a step toward greater purity, greater health benefits and a safer food supply.
