For People, Animals & Our Planet

Health

Properly administered whole-food plant-based diets can prevent, stop, and reverse disease, with life-changing results. In fact, such specific diets are now actually being prescribed as medicine. Join us at our and learn the latest from our vendors, speakers & chefs. This historic paradigm shifting of our healthcare system is happening right here in our local community! It’s long been known that true healthcare actually consists of the food a person chooses to eat.

Compassion

We want to help enable people to reconsider their relationships with animals as commodities in order to incorporate a more compassionate lifestyle that benefits their own health, the health of the planet, and all living beings.

Planet

It may not be as widely known, or understood, but conventional animal farming is one of the most destructive forces our planet faces. The resources used to produce animal based food products are neither sustainable nor necessary. Everything from water, to land, to food itself is being used at levels that we simply cannot maintain. Reducing demand for animal-based products could have immensely positive benefits for our planet.
