There is far more to vegetarianism and veganism than simply not eating meat. “I want as many people as possible to know about this lifestyle choice,” explains Christine Burgemeester, whose companies Vegatafel and Vegenement organise Veggie Fair and VegFestNL. On 22 and 23 October, all will be welcome at Veggie Fair; a free event ideal for anyone interested in the vegetarian lifestyle – whether they are vegetarian already, lactose intolerant or new to the lifestyle. It is held at a biological orchard on the Olmenhorst estate in Lisserbroek, near Amsterdam, during the apple harvesting period.
