“That’s when we’re at our best—when we support each other. Not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes, but when we help each other to grow, when we educate each other, when we guide each other toward redemption.”
Save the date! The Gabriola Vegeteers are putting on the screening of “The End of Meat” with the generous sponsorship of the Veg Fund. Saturday, Feb 22, 2pm at the VI Regional Library Gabriola Island! See ya there. ❤
Philosophers, scientists, artists, and activists provide their insight and opinion on the role of animals in society, and investigate what a post-meat world would mean for the environment.

FORK OFF: Animals, Art, & Advocacy
Waterfront Gallery 610 Oyster Bay Drive Ladysmith BC
Opening Event: Saturday June 22, 1-4 pm
Featuring a talk by Sheila Norgate Saturday June 29 2pm
Exhibit runs daily 11-4pm until Sunday June 30.
People are moving toward a plant-based diet for many reasons including personal health and environmental disquiet. But for a group of visual artists featured in an upcoming exhibit at Ladysmith’s Waterfront Gallery, a large part of their decision to not eat animals rests with the animals themselves.
Fork off: Animals, Art, & Advocacy showcases the work of nine accomplished and award-winning artists, all of whom place themselves firmly on the vegan/vegetarian continuum. Dianna Bonder, Heather Cameron, Tammy Hudgeon, Caroline James, Judy Mountjoy, Leslie Norgate, Sheila Norgate, Zena Rogak and Mia Tremblay may be diverse in their choice of mediums but they are united in their concern for the plight of animals. Each has created new artwork specifically for this exciting and ground-breaking exhibition.
The show, proudly presented by Gabriola-based Vegeteers and generously supported by donors, will feature a talk by artist/performer Sheila Norgate recounting her own meandering path towards a plant-based life (2:00 pm Saturday, June 29).
Delicious plant-based snacks will be provided by Ladysmith’s fantastic new restaurant, Plantitude, for the opening reception (June 22) and for Sheila’s talk (June 29).
Please join us for this stimulating, challenging, and heartfelt exhibition.

The Vegeteers will be participating in the Isle of the Arts Festival with a plant-based food workshop on Sunday, April 14th.
