Huntsville Vegans will have a table at the Green U festival held at the Huntsville Botanical Garden on Saturday, August 24th, from 9:00AM – 3:00PM. We will be handing out literature on the effects of factory farming on the environment, giving out free food samples, and answering any questions on how to become vegan.
Want to get involved? Here’s how you can help us spread information about a plant-based diet :
Volunteer to help staff our booth
We will have a team of three people staffing the table all day, but we’d love to have more members there to help hand out food, talk to interested passersby, and just have fun hanging out together. If you’re interested, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to one of our Friday meetups at Cafe 153 @ Bridgestreet (near the Monaco theater) starting at 6:00PM.
Make a donation of environmental-focused, vegan literature
Can’t make it to Green U but want to make sure we have tons of vegan literature to handout? As a community group, we’re always very thankful for donations of vegan brochures to have available at events. We’ve ordered some supplies, but can always use more in case there is a larger turnout than we have anticipated.
Here are some of our favorite vegan brochures that showcase the effects of animal agriculture on the environment:
- “Eating Sustainably” – published by Compassion Over Killing
- “Factory Farming: Destroying the Environment” – published by Farm Sanctuary
- “Go Green, Go Vegan!” – published by Action for Animals
Donating literature is as easy as spending $5 for a bundle of 50 brochures and then dropping them off at our meetup or at the event itself.
Stop by our table and say hi!
Busy tables help draw other attendees in. If you don’t want to volunteer but will be attending the festival, please stop by our table and chat with us for a while.
