World Vegetarian Month


World Vegetarian Day

October is World Vegetarian Month, the celebration of all things vegetarian!  

Whether you plan your own vegetarian dinner parties, or join in an arranged picnic or outing, you make a difference by showing your support for the day and by including non-vegetarians in your celebrations.

Here’s some of what we got up to on WVD 2013…
