Oct. 3 – Plant-Based 101 Presentation by VegMichigan at Ferndale Library

Oct. 3 – Plant-Based 101 Presentation by VegMichigan at Ferndale Library

FERNDALE, MI — VegMichigan will be at the Ferndale Library on Thu., Oct 3, where they’ll be combining a free food tasting with an insightful and interactive discussion about how a plant-based diet can benefit not only one’s overall health but also the environment. VegMichigan is a non-profit organization based in the Metro Detroit area. It was founded nearly 20 years ago; since then, their board and staff have been on a mission to demonstrate the nutritional perks of adopting plant-based (or mostly plant-based) diets, as well as the ethical aspects of switching from a meat-centric regimen. VegMichigan installed a unique display inside the Ferndale Library as an educational campaign to demonstrate just how fulfilling and delicious a vegan lifestyle can be.

On Oct 3, VegMichigan staff will serve free samples of vegan food while humane educator Kim Korona will present the finer points on how to shift toward a daily routine that is in no way dependent on food or consumer goods that are directly derived from animal products. Audience members can join a discussion with any questions while they sample vegan cuisine, provided by VegMichigan.

Korona has been a workshop facilitator for the Institute for Humane Education, providing training on how to live a life that does the most good and the least harm to people, other species, and the planet. She received a B.A. from Goddard College in Vermont and a Masters in Education from Cambridge in Massachusetts. While working at HEART, (a non-profit education organization) for the past decade, she has developed curricula and other educational resources that promote compassion, critical thinking, and empowerment through topics related to animal protection, environmental ethics, and social justice. She has been vegetarian for 20 years, vegan for 17 years, and believes that together we can create a healthier, more compassionate, equitable, and sustainable world for all through our personal choices and on a systemic level.
