local veg groups?
So I was just at the grocery store and...exciting!!!! The person in front of me in line was buying all produce/bean/grain type things!!! (Yes, I am guilty of looking in other people's grocery carts). Furthermore, it is the only time I have ever seen another person using a reusable box/bag in my year of living here. I really wanted to ask if he was vegan, but I was too shy.
That got me thinking, though....maybe I should try to start a local veg group for people that are vegan/veg/transitioning/interested in learning about vegetarianism/like to cook. I got really excited thinking about that, because I generally love where I live, but it is hard to meet like-minded people (my town's major industry is the giant Hormal slaughterhouse/processing plant).
My questions are numerous: Has anyone had success doing this? How did you do it? Is anyone part of a local veg group? What kinds of events/activities have you participated in that you've found fun or helpful? I'm very excited at this possibility, and my wheels are turning...
Well, I have spotted a vegetarian and vegan meetup group in my local area. If you go on meetup.com, and find your city/town and create a name, you can get in touch with others who have the same interests by searching. Good luck!
