International Speakers Include Veganic Farmers and Authors
Quebec City, Canada – The first-ever Veganic Summit focused exclusively on veganic farming and gardening takes place from November 10 to 12, 2023. This summit is an initiative of the Veganic Agriculture Network and Learn Veganic. “Veganic” (also called “Stockfree”) refers to farming and gardening that uses entirely plant-based fertilizers, without any chemical inputs or animal byproducts like manure or bone meal.
“Many people are surprised to learn that our fruits and vegetables are often fertilized using the byproducts of animal agriculture, like blood meal and factory farm manure,” says Meg Kelly, teacher at Learn Veganic and co-producer of the summit. The event includes a variety of talks geared toward farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, activists, and anyone who would like to see food systems that are more compassionate, healthier, just, and low-impact. Organizers want to empower people to take their next steps in applying veganics.
Kelly continues: “Veganic farming and gardening has so many benefits. It’s kinder to animals. It creates a safer food supply by reducing contaminants like E. coli and heavy metals. And it uses less land, freeing up space for wildlife.”
Attendees will learn how:
The Veganic Summit is free to attend and recordings will be available. For an additional fee, attendees can upgrade to the All-Access Pass, which includes online Q&A sessions and networking events, The Veganic Grower’s Handbook, the four most recent digital issues of Growing Green International magazine, and more.
Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12, 2023
