While keeping up with two of our favorite benefits-Sea Shepherd of Whale Wars fame and our local Catskill Farm Sanctuary, I came across an event they will be set up (and speaking) at in New York City on Fathers Day weekend.
The Seed: A Vegan Experience says it is “two days of vegan exploration await you. Nourish your taste buds on scrumptious plant-based food from New York’s famed vegan restaurants – the best in the world! Get inspired by world-renowned speakers, champion athletes, and top chefs. Provoke new thoughts withaward-winning films and their directors. Discover the vast market of cruelty-free products and services. And much more. The Seed invites the vegan-curious, vegan-skeptical, and vegan choir to explore what veganism has to offer today. You’ll gain understanding of the endless benefits of a compassionate, healthful, and earth-conscious existence of the vegan lifestyle.”
How cool does this look! We will be going of course and will bring back all sort of new ideas for you I am sure.
Now…regarding the Sea Shepherd Society
I am not happy. Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Society is being held under house arrest in Germany for possible extradition to Costa Rica for his campaign against shark finning. Another atrocity of the sea world that he bravely and tirelessly fought a decade ago. Until his release we will be upping the donation of our Sea Shepherd arrangements to 50%. Please consider this design in our Flowers For A Cause when shopping on our site to send flowers.
