Vegan, Activist, Plant Powered Athlete :) I am as passionate about this form of gentle advocacy (B&B, Cooking Classes, Adventure Fitness and Hike Guiding the Plant Powered way!) as I am about non violent direct action activism. I've been Vegan since 2012 and at 55 have never felt so alive and vital..or inspired to create positive change in our world.
