Working for a green, clean and cruelty free world means that we must stop feeding livestock that uses 45% of the earth’s arable land and is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gases and the methane they emit is up to 100 times more destructive than CO2. Whilst people starve 70 Billion farmed animals are killed annually for food. This is unethical and cruel. Chorlton has two unique projects that set out to change this: Unicorn the vegan superstore and The Vegan Organic Network (VON) that promotes vegan organic – stockfree farming: farming without killing. Learn about VON’s work and join the discussion. www.veganorganic.net

Children’s Story – Girl Who Could See Stories
Author Gill Torres will be reading The Girl Who Could See Stories; a picture book that aims to inspire children to love themselves and the planet by choosing a healthy plant-based lifestyle free of animal products.
The Girl Who Could See Stories is about Sofiel, a girl with a special gift. Sofiel could see the story behind every thing and every person she looked at. One day she looked at the food she was eating. From that moment on she decided to feed her tummy with happy stories.
