Veganic Expert Merlin Rees Appearing on Marlene & Friends

My friend and fellow vegan, comrade Merlin Rees, has been at the forefront of  “veganic” (vegan organic) gardening since the 90’s.  As a professional Horticulturist and educator at Shangri-La, Gentle World’s vegan education center in New Zealand and Hawaii http://gentleworld.org among many other accolades, Merlin is the man to follow for inspiration and education on all aspects of ‘veganic’ gardening.

Like Merlin, I am a vegan in my heart, and I love vegans for being the most powerful force, particularly those who are willing to adopt the principles of our friend Professor Gary Francione’s abolitionist approach to animal rights.  If we do not adopt these principles then we stay locked in the revolving door with the same old, some old, same old and the brutality of our animal kingdom will continue to exist.

Golden Rees Vegan Author & Educator

Merlins wife, Golden Rees, is a vegan educator, chef and baker for The Vegan Restaurant in Maui, co-author of the book “Incredibly Delicious: the Vegan Paradigm Cookbook” and works alongside Merlin at Gentle World.

During the past several years, the call to reduce our consumption of animal products has grown tremendously. Vegan recipe blogs have proliferated into the hundreds, if not thousands. Both the number and the variety of vegan items available in stores and online are increasing annually. New vegan businesses are opening and thriving more than ever, including cafes, bakeries, restaurants, grocery stores, clothing stores, online boutiques, and even retreat centres and B&Bs.

There’s never been a better time and as the demand for vegan alternatives grows, it’s only going to get even easier.   Bill and I look forward to teaching at the World Vegan Summit in San Francisco http://worldvegansummit.com this month and have so many friends and colleagues to join forces with to present inspiring and educational lectures to the masses.

In good health
