It is fantastic to see the growing number of events popping up around the country that promote plant-based eating. One of the biggest is happening in Whangarei this Sunday.

If you seriously want to avoid becoming a victim to heart disease, stroke, type two diabetes and more then join us to find out how at the Vegan Expo, Forum North in Whangarei on November 25th.

This will be the third year of the expo which takes its inspiration from a similar Christchurch event held successively over the last 10 years.

The high number of top level speakers coming to the Whangarei event  is testament to the seriousness of the expo’s organisers, the Christchurch Vegan Society, in getting the message out to a wide range of New Zealanders..

The Expo opens at 10 am with the first address to be delivered at 10.30. Various speakers will deliver a wide range of topics throughout the day with the final address at 3:30. The event closes at 4pm.
