What we're about
A warm welcome to Vegan Enthusiast Gals San Diego (VEG)! We are a group of positive, life-loving women* in San Diego that are all about good vibes, delicious food and the vegan lifestyle! Whether you want to learn how to cook delicious (and usually very nutrient dense) vegan food, attend a diverse array of events in the San Diego area, explore the connections between spirituality/social justice and veganism, or become part of a tight knit community of amazing vegan ladies, this group is for you! You don't have to be vegan to join, just inspired by the wonderful veg world! (Note: we do ask that you prepare and consume only vegan food for all events).
Our members host a wide range of fun, outside-the-box events, including:
potlucks/dinner parties, an ongoing book club (meets every 6 weeks), trips, SD events, new restaurant visits, holiday celebrations, film/TV screenings, farm sanctuary visits and of course, any amazing events you would like to host!
In order to create a sense of intimacy and meaningful connection between all members, we ask that you attend at least one event every three months. This will help ensure an engaged and deeply connected community :). We seek to center this group around the core values of compassion, open communication and having FUN!
Finally, Meetup.com charges VEG $120/year so our group has a $10 annual membership fee, payable directly to Meetup.com. As a new member, you will receive a free 30 day trial before the fee is due. All remaining funds after the Meetup.com dues are paid will be used to help fund a fabulous yearly event that will be open to all members. Please note that if you have extenuating circumstances that make paying this fee a challenge, please reach out to us so we can help support you!
ALL are welcome who meet the above criteria (*note: anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome; we are LGBTQ friendly)! We so look forward to laughing, talking and eating with you. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out... This group is joyfully organized by Alyssa but created together by all of us!
