Discover the Veganic Food Revolution at VegfestUK Brighton 2019

Discover the Veganic Food Revolution at VegfestUK Brighton 2019

| by Vegan Organic Network | Posted in VegfestUK Brighton 2019

Veganism is rising, but we still can’t buy food that is grown the vegan way. Come to the Veganic Growing talks area at VegfestUK Brighton 2019 and learn how food production is connected to animal rights, veganism, pollution and the environment.


What is the difference between Organic and Veganic?

  • Veganic farms only use plant-based fertilisers and no chemicals.
  • Organic farms use slaughterhouse by-products such as fish, blood, bone and animal manure as fertiliser and no chemicals.
  • Conventional farms use chemicals, slaughterhouse by-products such as fish, blood, bone and animal manure as fertilizer.


Come to the Veganic Farming and Growing area at VegfestUK Brighton for some veganic produce, grown by Shumei, a farm based in Yatesbury. Be inspired by our excellent speakers who include Mathew Appleby who writes for the Guardian, horticultural radio show host, presenter and writer Ellen Mary, international speaker Ian Tolhurst, UK’s first certified Stockfree (veganic) farmer and many others.

Whether you are a consumer or grower, it is vital for us to support the veganic movement.

The Vegan Organic Network is the only organisation in the UK solely dedicated to working for vegan food to be grown the veganic way.
