The Green Gathering 2018

A four day festival beyond hedonism powered by wind, sun and people… just the best!

Educate for sustainability, create alternatives, frolic in fields. Powered by wind, sun & people, and Food by Veggies. Veggies hope again to be supporting a Co-operators Camp together with Radical Routes & others, in the Campaigns Zone.

This year or next Veggies will be eligible again for the Ethical Caterer Award, having won it in 2015! By August 2018 we hope to have established distribution of our Ethical Consumer Best Buy Burger/Sosage Mixes to many other caterers to help raise their ethical sourcing. We will have increased the hemp in the mix and will have sourced our herbs, and possibly our hemp, from Bradley Nook Farm who, in 2017, donated it’s beef herd to all-life rescue and is transitioning, with our support, to vegan organic growing.

Chant For All Beings To Be Free

We will come together to chant in unity the mantra: ‘Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu’ ~ which in essence means ‘May All Beings Be Free.’

We will meet in Jubilee Square in Leicester for this event. This is a public open space. People can come & join in for as long as they please. We invite people to help leaflet & conduct outreach at the same time.

Chanting this powerful mantra assists us in sending compassion to all beings, & in particular those beings that are most often overlooked: the animals.

Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed by humans every year for food. They are bred, enslaved & eventually sent to slaughter. In the dairy industry, cows are artificially made pregnant, their calves separated from them, they are milked by machines & then eventually sent to slaughter when they are of no more use.

This day of chanting will be for the animals. It will be to remember them & to send love & compassion. We will also extend that compassion to those who are not yet aware of the full reality of the meat & dairy industry & its environmental impact. And we’ll send it to those that work tirelessly to raise awareness about the suffering.

Dina Aherne of Imperfectly Vegan and Sailesh Rao Executive Director of Climate Healers with be speaking at the event. Also Sandra HIggins Campaign Director at Go Vegan World and Director at Eden Farmed Animal Sanctuary Ireland.”

Come & join with others of a like mind to chant, to support the animals, and to visualise a humane future. Everyone is welcome regardless of religion or belief.💚🌎🌱
