The Association végétarienne de Montréal, a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting veganism, will be hosting a couple of exciting events this not-so-bleak November- we’ve been having gorgeous weather, don’t you agree? 3rd annual Big Veggie Gathering / Grand Rencontre Végé The third installment of the Big Veggie Gathering, a celebration of vegan food and living, is coming up this Sunday. In prior years, this event has included speakers, food demos, film screenings, and representatives from animal and vegan advocacy organisations across Québec. This year, it's back to basics: enjoying great vegan food with friends old and new, and learning about the movement here in Québec. The afternoon discussion will focus on a Meatless Monday initiative. Facebook event Sunday, 22 novembre 2009
