World Vegetarian Day
World Vegetarian Day is observed annually around the planet on October 1. It is a day of celebration established by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union in 1978, "To promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism." It brings awareness to the ethical, environmental, health, and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle.
World Vegetarian Day initiates the month of October as Vegetarian Awareness Month, which ends with November 1, World Vegan Day, as the end of that month of celebration. Vegetarian Awareness Month has been known variously as "Reverence for Life" month, "Month of Vegetarian Food", and more.
World Vegan Day
World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans all around the world every 1st of November. The benefits of veganism for humans, non-human animals and the natural environment are celebrated through activities such as setting up stalls, displays, movies, hosting potlucks, planting memorial trees, and specially catered meals at cafes and restaurants. The event was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society of the UK, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the organisation and the coining of the terms "vegan" and "veganism" by Donald Watson.

'There's something in the air....'
d's consciousness is changing.
Witness what is happening [vegan-wise] in the USA - wonderful...
And in New Zealand - one of many examples is Food Forest Organics: the Cameron Family Farms cafe* in Greytown.
Gary Francione says,' Veganism is not a sacrifice - it is a joy.'
We celebrate in spirit with Gary every second month at Te Horo, and hope you really enjoy these buffets and 'get togethers' as an example of compassion for all sentient beings.
Starting at 10.30am drinks are available from the cash bar (eftpos also available.)
The Vegan Brunch Buffet follows from around 11.00am or so.
After the main course, we hope to have a guest speaker.
