Jimmy Videle:

I have been growing my own food for 25 years, professional organic farming for 18 and veganic growing since 2014. In addition to the two farms I co-owned in Arizona and Boileau, Québec I have had the fortunate opportunity to consult, advise, volunteer and work on eleven other farms throughout Québec, Hawaii, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador as well as with AUM Films (Cowspiracy and What the Health docu-films), Humane Party USA, Animal Protection Party Canada and Growing Green International magazine UK.In these ever-changing times the one certainty I have been blessed to partake in is growing my own biodiverse mix of fruits, vegetables, herbs & flowers. My knowledge and experience are there for the asking of. I hope to help you along your path!

Jimmy’s Veganic Grower’s Hour:

The bi-weekly Veganic Grower’s Hour starting February 3rd from 7-8 P.M.

Now more than ever it is vital that we engage with how our food is grown.

Tune into our show and become part of the growing revolution which can not only transform your garden plot but also change the way the world grows its food.

We are losing our right to peaceful protest-here’s how you can take action

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

This post does not relate directly to veganic growing, but it does affect the future rights of groups like VON to express alternative views to the status quo, and to call for action by joining protests such as we did at  COP26.

You have only a few days to make your voice heard before the House of Lords meets to make any amendments to the Policing Bill! 

Add YOUR voice and join us in opposing these measures which curb our freedoms of speech by following the links below.

In March 2021, a collective outcry amongst environmentalists and human rights advocates echoed across the country after the UK government published its proposed Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts (PCSC) bill. The bill gives police extraordinary powers to crack down on the freedom to protest, criminalises Gypsy and Traveller communities’ way of life and threatens foreign nationals’ residency status. Recently, home secretary Priti Patel added further authoritarian amendments at short notice, leaving little time for parliamentary scrutiny. The bill is currently with the House of Lords after passing through the Commons. Protest-related clauses are to be debated on 10th January.

We are super excited, to announce that our Vegan Organic Fest 2022 is back after a very successful first year! We are looking forward to a fun, entertaining and thought provoking back to nature veganic event.

The Vegan Organic Fest will be at Chyan Cultural Centre; an eleven acre site deep in the Cornish countryside with a capacity of about 200 people, camping facilities, on site hostel and nearby alternative accommodation.

Chyan is an off grid veganic apple farm with its own supply of spring water. The venue hosts many events and is a wonderful place for returning to nature, some of the land is wild, some is nature reserve and there is plenty of flat meadow for camping.  Chyan has a 200-seater geodesic dome theatre, two large modern barns for classes plus several marquees. The centre has its own wind turbine, which provides electricity for the whole site, the hot showers, swimming pool and sauna are all fed by natural spring water.  We are blessed to be able to hold the festival in such a beautiful, peaceful and positive space. https://chyan.org/.

The event is from midday on Thursday 18th August- midday Tuesday 23rd August with activities happening from Friday-Sunday.
