Registration is now open for the next session of Northwest VEG's highly acclaimed Master VEG Program beginning Tuesday, June 11. This action-packed eight-week program will provide you with in-depth information on a healthy, environmentally-sustainable plant-based diet. Presentations cover plant-based nutrition, the link between diet and chronic disease prevention, the environmental impacts of the foods we grow and eat, the lives of farm animals, animal rights/welfare philosophies, answering the tough questions about plant-based diets, a Food for Life cooking demo and more.
A key component of the program is the service-oriented project, where attendees are expected to contribute at least 16 volunteer hours to a nonprofit organization that concerns itself with one or more of the issues discussed during the course. See nwveg.org/mvp for details and to register.
