Permaculture

A series of talks focusing on plant based Permaculture, Farming and Growing - kindly hosted by Vegan Organic Network. Located on level 2 of Olympia Central.

At this year’s London Vegfest, Vegan Organic Network will be hosting a whole section of the event, devoted to how we grow our food. There will be a great selection of speakers talking about a variety of topics including how to grow your own, and alternatives to organic vegetable farming which is dependent on animal agriculture.

Bring your shopping bags as there will be a great selection of Veganic fruit and veg and other consumables, as well as books, leaflets, merchandise and our experts will be on hand to answer any questions.

With the exponential rise in Veganism and Vegan products, Vegan companies should start sourcing Veganic ingredients to make their products, rather than using ingredients which are grown with chemicals or as is the case with most organic food, which uses fertilizer from animal agriculture. Vegans want to see Veganic on food labels, which will guarantee products are free from chemicals and are not dependant on animal farming.

You can contact your favourite Vegan company and ask them if the ingredients in their products are grown free from animal fertilizers i.e. manure, fish, blood or bone meal.

VON has organized an exciting line up of speakers, come along and join the Veganic Revolution.
