Happy World Vegan Day 2011 :-)




To celebrate World Vegan Day 2011, the Invercargill Vegan Society (INVSOC) planted a memorial tree -  67 years since Donald Watson coined the term "vegan", and the first Vegan Society were founded in 1944.

Our greatest thanks to Invercargill Parks and Reserves for helping us remember this great day :-)  The tree chosen is a Kauri  ("cow-reee"), a New Zealand native which grows to be very, very big!





From all the Vegans in Invercargill, New Zealand - Happy World Vegan Day! :-)

Also, try our World Vegan Day episode, featuring over 30 vegan voices from around the world :-)  Episode 67 "World Vegan Day 2011"




*** UPDATE  September 2012 ***

Our Tree was visited by Wellington Vegan Julie Gunn, of radio show "Animal Rights and Wrongs"
