Retro Vegans from the 70's

Ok, call me a nerd, but I think this is cool.  I recently discovered an episode from the BBC tv show  the Open Door, about vegans and their way of life. This is 1976!  How many people even knew what a vegan was back then?  I'm amazed at how current (well, except for the fashion!) the information shared is. There's even a segment where they interview a woman in her veganic garden. Although they didn't call it that back then. Here's the half hour program divided up into three parts. 

Curious about the kids from this show and how they grew up? Well, here's a great interview on the blog The Vegan Option, where they talk to grown-up baby Rosemary from the second video and other born vegan kids too.

Online vegan conference!

I love stuff like this. Online conferences that bring together different authors and professionals in the field of health. I have to say that this is the first one I've ever seen with such a diverse group of experts from the vegan community.

I highly recommend you check out Veganpalooza. I'm looking forward to listening to as many of the speakers as possible, but I admit I do have my favorites.  Like Neal Barnard of  the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of such fabulous books as The Joy of Vegan Baking and The 30 Day Vegan Challenge, and creator of the Vegetarian Food for Thought podcast.

Another voice I'm looking forward to hearing from for the first time is social justice pioneer Keith McHenry of Food Not Bombs.   I was even pleasantly surprised to see Christian minister Frank Hoffman of  But all in all everyone in this lineup has amazing stuff to share and I can't wait to listen to their interviews.  The fun starts tomorrow!
