Communicate with veganic growers
- Join a discussion group about veganic growing. You can ask questions and share knowledge with other people who are interested in veganic agriculture.
- Browse through the list of farms to see what other growers are accomplishing in North America. On the clickable farm map, you can find more information about each farm, including their websites!
Adopt veganic principles
- See “How to grow”, “Gardening how-to” and “What is veganic?” to learn more about veganic principles and techniques so you can start growing veganically or transition over to veganic practices. And visit our partner website “Learn Veganic” if you would like to take a guided online course.
- Learn more from books, magazines and research
Start a veganic farm
- Starting a farm can provide many people in your region with the option of veganic produce.
- By joining a veganic discussion group, you can communicate with people who are currently farming using veganic practices, to get guidance and help for starting a farm.
- If you already farm veganically, please contact us so we can add your farm profile to the website.
- Stockfree-Organic, U.K. The Vegan Organic Network and the Soil Association in the United Kingdom have developed a Stockfree-Organic certification program for plant-based farmers and gardeners, with comprehensive guidelines for ethical agriculture.
- Efforts are being made in North America to provide similar certification opportunities for veganic farmers:
- Certified Veganic, North America. A new Certified Veganic program was launched for North America in 2023. It offers low-cost certification for veganic farmers while supporting knowledge-sharing.
- 3rd Party Stockfree, U.S. Going through a local 3rd party certifier in Gainesville, Florida, Victoria Farm applied for Vegan-Organic certification using the Stock-Free standards. Other farmers can apply through the same certifier.
Share your experience
- Write articles: if you have a special area of expertise in veganic growing (a certain veganic technique, farming in a particular region, and so on) there are opportunities to write articles for the magazine Growing Green International or the Veganic Agriculture Network website. You can also write a general introduction to veganics, and see if it can be published in local newsletters or newspapers.
- Offer farm and garden visits: By opening your farm or garden to the public (even on occasion), this allows people who are curious about veganics to ask questions and learn more in a real-life setting.
- Host apprentices or wwoofers or garden-helpers: First-hand experience on a veganic farm or garden is an important way for the next generation of growers to gain the knowledge they need.
- Give talks: There are many venues that may accept speakers on the topic of veganics. Inquire at gardening groups, environmental networks, community centres, churches, and vegetarian clubs. Conferences often look for speakers on a wide range of topics.
- Translate: If you speak another language, we welcome translations of our website content to reach a wider audience. Contact us for more info.
Contribute financially to this network
- The Veganic Agriculture Network runs on volunteer hours, and a small budget to finance the website and to print materials for promoting veganics. We are thankful for donations, which will allow us to greatly expand our activities.
