Registration is open for our 2015 Vegan Living Program!

vlpThe Vegan Living Program (VLP) is a series of educational events that cover the hows and whys of vegan living, including the ethical and environmental implications of vegan lifestyles, nutrition, cooking, meal planning, and living vegan in a not-yet-vegan world.

Each spring, we host Vegan Pledges who pledge to live vegan for the 5-week program, with the help of volunteer Vegan Coaches. Vegan Pledges receive a binder full of resources and recipes, and a goody bag of free vegan stuff to make the transition easier and more fun! The 2015 Baltimore Vegan Pledge will be March 28th - May 2nd. (Click here for our Long Island VLP, taking place May 30-June 27.)

The Vegan Living Program sessions listed below are 100% required attendance for Vegan Pledges and Coaches. The educational sessions are open to everyone, but to be a Pledge or Coach you must attend all six! You may RSVP for these events on Facebook if you'd like. Pledges and Coaches must register (see buttons below).
