Northwest VEG Veganic Gardening Group

The Northwest VEG Veganic Gardening Group promotes plant-based sustainable, low-impact gardening and farming. We share information on how to garden without using artificial pesticides and fertilizers, as well as without manures, fish waste, blood meal, or other animal-based products. Our efforts have positive impacts on health and the environment, plus encompass respect for all life.

Veganic Discussion Group

Our Discussion Group welcomes gardeners at all levels of experience who are interested in learning more about the 'why and how' of veganic practices. For those living in the Portland, Oregon metro area and SW Washington, we also have occasional get-togethers and field trips.
