Hey you! Yes you, vegan in Halifax. Are you looking for a local community to join and meet other like-minded individuals? Maybe you’re a new or seasoned vegan but whatever the case, you may be interested in looking into the Nova Scotia Vegan Association. The NSVA is a recently formed group whose goal is to “provide resources, guidance and a community for people who are vegan or interested in a vegan lifestyle”. Not so much as a formal organization as it is a reservoir of individuals who share a common practice and therefore they provide support and information for others who have the same world outlook as themselves.
If you check out their facebook group, you will find a number of links to information on veganism (ethics, nutrition, cooking etc.). They also occasionally host vegan cooking classes which would be a great opportunity to sharpen your skills in the kitchen and meet some great people!
Speaking of meeting great people, they also host a popular vegan potluck that is hosted on the second Sunday of every month (the next one is scheduled for July 11th!) at the Dalhousie Women’s Centre. The last potluck’s theme was brunch (and was also the potluck that I made the doughnuts for!) and there is usually a theme each month, check out the afore-mentioned facebook group for details on these events!
If you’re interested in joining the group or learning more about it, check out their facebook page (which I added to my ‘Halifax Links’ section on the right side of this page)!
