Oh, yeah, sorry for not keeping it on the lighter side. I didn't mean to sound as if I was preaching!

You forgot to include the info, Veganichik :D :p :rolleyes:

I will get an allotment when I have more time. I'll grow as much of my own food as I can - veganically, of course. I might try deep beds. A bit of forest gardening. Companion planting.

Huguenot Street Farm is in New Platz, New York - they have a web site: www.flyingbeet.com (http://www.flyingbeet.com)

Khadigar Farm is in Maine. This web site has some information about this farm: http://www.mofga.org/mofjun92.html#KI

Whistling Winds Farm and Education Center (also called Center for Vegan Organic Education) is in Washington State - their web site is: www.veganorganiced.org (http://www.veganorganiced.org)

Denise Hackney in Michigan also grows veganically. She spoke at NAVS a few years ago. She's worth googling and getting in contact with because she's done a lot for veganics - co-founder of Vegetarian Info Network & Exchange...

I'm pretty sure that BIODYNAMIC farming means that they have used blood an bone meal in the soil.

I don't buy things that say biodynamic on em for that reason

I thought biodynamic was gardening by the moon phases. Planting when the moon is waxing and not planting when it is waning. Or something like that. Steiner, is it?

Just ignore the previous post. I wrote it before reading posts after Antony's first one. Just ignore me. People usually do.

Thanks for that info!

But, aaarrrrggghhh, the New Paltz farm is relatively close by and they even have a CSA - and I'm moving across the country in the spring. Hopefully, a veganic farm will spring up in Washington or Oregon soon. Maybe that's what I'll wish for this christmas. :)

DianeVegan, Whistling Winds Farm is in Washington - on Vashon Island which is near Seattle. They are also known as Center for Vegan Organic Education. You might want to contact them if you're looking for a farm in Washington or Oregon. Western Washington and Oregon are very progressive, and I'd guess you'd have good luck there. Where are you moving in particular? I used to live in the Puget Sound area and enjoyed it very much.

I am moving next spring (depends on when my house sells) and will definitely contact Whistling Winds Farm after viewing their website. This move is going to be so good for us and finding a veganic farm would make it almost too good. :)
