What we're about

We are a volunteer community group who explore the ideas of compassionate living. The central theme of our discussion is that all animals are beings who deserve to be treated with respect, including humans.

We encourage you to demonstrate curiosity. Together we study ideas outside the cultural conditioning in which we were all raised.

We focus our outreach efforts on introducing an improved way of eating. Eating with love, peace, and compassion for all beings. Our goal is to peel back the layers of disconnect and bring acknowledgement to the inner peace we all seek.

We each have consumer power. Collectively, the dollars we spend impact the world we live in. We must tune in and turn on to recognize how our choices affect us and the planet.

Consumer choices are being made every day about food. You will make one soon.
Are you ready to be part of the solution?

Lunch at Seed to Table

Needs a location

Let's have lunch at Seed to Table in Venice. Seed to Table is an all-vegan eatery with a good selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts, and other items. The restaurant has been kind enough to allow our group to hold a meetup there in June.

Since it's a small, locally owned restaurant that needs time to prepare for our event, they have asked us to order our meals at least two days in advance. You can go to the web address below and order there. Please type "VegSarasota" in the description when ordering so that they'll know you are with the Meetup group.


The restaurant also has somewhat limited seating, so the event will be capped at 16 people. If you sign up to go but later realize that you cannot attend, please change your RSVP so that others may have a chance to attend. Let's show some support for a local vegan restaurant in the area!
