A group of like-minded businesses working together to create the UK's first fully vegan and zero waste venue. As a result of various experiences some of the team have had, we felt it was important that the venue offers mental health and wellbeing support through workshops and one to one sessions. There's a lot of people in the area that would benefit from these services.
The Vegan Quarter will be home to permanent businesses, pop ups and working with other local organizations to provide a space for various workshops and sessions, such as mental health, environmental, arts/craft, meditation and yoga.
We will also provide employment opportunities for those finding it difficult to get into work, weather that be through health, age, confidence, homelessness etc.
The entire site will be zero waste and as environmentally friendly as possible, for example the toilets being run off rainwater, any food waste being composted, bike racks available for those that cycle. And many more brilliant ideas depending on the building we go ahead with.
The Vegan Quarter will be a one stop shop for all you need whether you're vegan or not, here's some examples of businesses and services we have in mind:
Zero waste grocery/retail shop incl. make up/perfume
Vegan Fried Chickun
Healthy meals & snacks
Fresh fruit and veg
Yoga - Adults & children
This is a great opportunity for small businesses to get up and running with little to no risk.
The funds we raise will be allocated to rent and building works such as kitchens/sinks for the food businesses. Furnishings and decoration to create a safe and welcoming place for all.
While we are progressing with this, we will be holding a few pop-up events to give you an idea of what to expect.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, we hope to see you at one of our events soon.
