Hey! As you can read in my profile, I've been veg*n for about 7 years, contemplating going raw. I've been peeking around the forums and have noticed some delightful things, so I think I'll stick around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:"> I especially like the little waving emoticons that new people seem to be greeted with often...so friendly... hopefully they'll welcome me too! It seems like there are people here from just about everywhere, and I suppose I can add another rare one. I was born, raised, and live in Kansas, population: a few ppl and millions of cows. I'm not exactly a small farm town gal, but its still cattle country. I can see up close the terrible effects of conventional agriculture and animal "production", so my main reasons for being vegan are environmental and humynitarian instead of the usual animal rights kick (still important to me also). It's not too difficult to be veg where I live, but it is difficult to come by organic produce (I have my own organic garden though, can't wait to check out the threads there!) I'm acquainted with 2 other vegans and several vegetarians in my locality (rah for livin in a college town), but there isn't any sort of veg support or organizations or anything anywhere around here, so I'm way happy to have found such a nice community online! I look forward to meeting lots of new ppl and sharing fun and ideas! and hey, feel free to email or IM as well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

"Digging in the Dirt" is a NEW Gardening forum here at VB, with us<br><br>
veggies in mind (easily confusable with "VeggiePatch" & "Compost<br><br>
Heap"). Rather silly I think in a funny sort of way, but "Digging in the Dirt" covers anything plant wise... but we do alas have it all covered at VB!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

coy!explosion Jamie!<br><br><br><br>
Hello and welcome!<br><br><br><br>
The other day I researched Kansas vegans in Google. I just picked a random state, the most unlikely place for vegans in my mind. And I did indeed found some links and IIRC, a veg*n group. Interesting! And now you join! This is great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I'm a raw foodist. So I'm sure we'll cross each other's paths on the boards! Stick around and post often! VB is a lot of fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
