Tweet Share on Facebook

October 3, 2010

Northwest VEG enthusiastically reaches out to everyone, extolling the benefits of plant-based culture to all life on earth, including the earth itself. Perhaps a massive endeavor, but we accomplish it with the support of our members, volunteers and Business Partners. This month we welcome four new partners to our midst: vegan Steve Cohn of Portland Couples Counseling Center, who helps keep our marriages healthy; Living Harvest, a local-based company that provides us with a wealth of nutritious and tasty hemp foods; a natural for us, VegNews magazine, which brings us all the latest news and fun happenings in our veggie world and New World Veg, a start-up company developing a directory connecting veg consumers with veg business owners. Please support these and the rest of our NW VEG Business Partners, found at
