March in the Ocean Beach Holiday Parade!
We are excited to, for the first time, represent PlantDiego in the HUGE OB Holiday Parade with our brand new PlantDiego banner! Let's let parade-goers know about plant-based diets for the animals, the environment and our health! Stay tuned for more details (and to register because we are only allowed 30 participants) Does anyone have a pickup truck we can decorate for the occasion (and also hold our chairs we use for our picnic while we march?). Here is info from the organizers: "Please mark your calendar for the Parade and begin your preparation for our fantastic family-­‐friendly parade. The Parade starts at 5:05 PM OB Time, on Saturday, December 1st, 2018. As a participant, you of course will need to arrive sooner. Additional details such as directions to the staging area and timing of your participation are forthcoming mid- November." Tentative Schedule (depends on where we are in the parade route): 4:00 Meet at Plant Power Fast food in OB and get your takeout for our picnic 4:30 Arrive at our designated spot - bring a chair, if you would like, it might be a long wait. Let's have a picnic in our waiting spot! Dress warmly! 5:05 Parade Starts! 6:30 Parade Ends (estimated time). Those who like can head to Winston's for live music and dancing!

What we're about

Our Mission: To educate and inform San Diegans about the benefits of eating a whole-food plant-based diet for optimal nutrition and health, environmental sustainability, compassion and mindfulness. We rally our community around the unifying concept of adopting a whole-food plant-based diet. We work with groups and provide support for individuals in transitioning to and/or maintaining a plant-based, animal-free diet and being conscientious stewards of the environment.

We schedule events to simply get together to learn, eat, and socialize. Please join this meet up if you want to learn about being part of the team and/or just coming to our fun events! To get in on the discussion, please "like" our page on Facebook, PlantDiego and we have a team leadership group on Facebook "PlantDiego Leadership Team."

PlantDiego plans large community events (like screenings of documentaries- PlantPure Nation, Cowspiracy, Forks over Knives for example), presentations by local experts, fundraisers, regular PlantDiego fun events (potlucks, meetings, visits to vegan restaurants, picnics, beach days), and community activism to get the word out about healthy plant-based diets.

This group is formed on the heals of PlantPure Nation ( - a ground breaking film and nationwide organization about the power of plant-based eating and the politics we struggle against to get the word out! Checkout the national PlantPure Pods website ( more information.

Please visit our local website and join our e-mail contact list ( and get our monthly informative newsletter with lots of great local features around plant-based eating and nutrition and info by clicking "Join Us" on . Questions? Please e-mail us at

Regular events/potlucks will occur every month (unless it's a holiday). Please bring a Whole Food Plant Based (no animal products, minimal oil and processed products) dish, serving utensils and your own plate, bowl and utensils. Also bring something to drink if you like. Please being at least $1 per event towards meet up fees and other expenses. We also need contributions to keep this organization going! Thanks!
