Lisa the founder of Barefood'N Happy was there sharing samples of her delicious cashew cheeze spreads. Everyone loved them!
My heart went out to several people who told me they were especially appreciative of this BBQ, because of encounters with some of their non-vegan family and friends who interpret their choice to be vegan as a negative judgement of them for eating meat/dairy/eggs, in spite of the fact that these vegans hadn't ever talked about their veganism. In fact they told me they went to great lengths to hide the fact that they even were vegan, so as to not make the non-vegans in their lives uncomfortable.
But for some of the attendees the best part of this event was happening just outside of the sheltered area. Here's to our future and the future of peace, justice, non-violence and environmental sustainability!
