If anyone has a restaurant they are interested in and would like to plan an occasional Diner's Club get together, just contact me, and I will post it on here - don't worry you don't have to commit to planning them all.
Also, if any other neighbourhood groups have a veg / veg-curious / food / gardening type event they would like posted as a meetup, please contact me.
The Potluck is presently hosted by the 'South Edmonton Vegetarian & Gardening Club' and speakers have a Topic with a Focus on Growing, Baking or Making and is related to gardening-, environment-, or sometimes just food-related, and everyone is welcome.
Remember to bring a Vegetarian/Vegan/Raw Dish for six(6) people plus a second dish if bringing a Guest or Partner If you would like to just attend for the speaker, that is an option as well (if you're too busy to prepare food that day), same costs, just arrive shortly before pm.
While British Columbia is considered the most vegetarian-friendly province, Quebec and Ontario are not far behind. “Being a vegan myself, it has become increasingly more important to meet a like-minded girl.
Ideally, she’d also be vegan,” says one 45-year-old speed dater who attended the event who didn’t want to give his name.
“I was a little nervous because Ottawa is much smaller than San Francisco and I didn’t know if there was a market for that here.” In 2015, 33 percent of Canadians – or almost 12 million people – reported being vegetarians or as eating less meat.
you just want to post on the message board, you can do that at any time.
“I started the event in 2011 because several of my friends said that they couldn’t find any vegetarian or vegan men.
“This seemed like the perfect situation for me and after going on Saturday, I definitely think there’s potential for me to meet someone this way.” Brighten’s events were very successful in San Francisco and resulted in several matches and long-term relationships – two couples that met through the event have since married.
She says that the success stories are why she continues to hold speed-dating sessions and hopes to bring that success to Ottawa’s dating scene.
“I know that speed dating is not a new concept but one specifically for vegetarians and vegans was definitely very unique,” Brighton adds.
