What we're about
Hey y'all, Columbia Veg is a South Carolina (Midlands area) community group for vegans, vegetarians, and people exploring a plant-based lifestyle for ethical, environmental, spiritual and/or health reasons.
The purpose of the group is to offer support, education and social interaction for our members.
All are welcome! You do not need to be vegan or vegetarian to join the group; we just ask that you and your guests order entirely plant-based food at our events (this means no animal-derived ingredients, including meat, seafood, dairy, eggs and honey). Group organizers are always available to answer any questions you have and offer suggestions at events, through email and in our Facebook group. Hit us up!
Our events can include dinners at local veg-friendly restaurants, potlucks, raw food events, vegan outreach/tabling, local farm tours, hikes, movie or documentary nights, veg-themed book club meetings and other ideas members come up with.
If you have an idea for an event or would like to host a gathering, or if you are interested in becoming an organizer, please message Rosemary or Stacy.
Because the purpose of our group is to hang out with each other in person, everyone is encouraged to use their first name as their profile name and to post a photo so we can recognize you when we meet.
Dues are $1 per meetup attended, or $5 per year. This goes toward the fee Meetup charges to maintain the website ($180/year) and various other expenses such as rental fees, business cards, etc.
**For discussions and questions be sure to join our Facebook group and add any of your local friends who would be interested: www.facebook.com/groups/columbiaveg.**
