Vegetarian and Vegan Classes by Sister Vegetarian

I am in the process of forming vegetarian and vegan classes in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill (Triangle Area).

If you are interested in attending one or all 4 classes over the course of a couple of weeks, please email me at and let me know what times are best for you, and the days of week. Once the dates have been established, I will send a formal invitation to sign-up for the classes.

Right now, I am acquiring a consensus as to the days that would work best for people who are interested in these empowering and informative classes. I will also extend the invitation to your community groups, businesses, schools, and places of worship where I would go to your location.

Below is a synopsis of the classes that would be offered:
