For a bit of back-story, I decided to go vegan in 2012 after volunteering in an avian sanctuary for various chickens, ducks, turkeys and other birds. It was there that I started to learn more about intensive farming industries. Although I have recently decided to eat some sustainable wild-caught fish to supplement my diet, my current feeling is that I don’t want to support animal farming industries mainly due to my thinking on animal ownership, self-determination and freedom.
Kinship Workshop does not require participants to follow a particular diet, but it does bring to light the questions of our relationship to other animals, therefore, during this enquiry (when eating communally) it feels easier to maintain a plant-based diet for the few days the workshop takes place. In addition, I try to keep to a modest shopping budget to make things more affordable, and as such animal products are harder to source with high welfare standards and sustainably sourced on a smaller budget.
Every effort is made to provide wholesome, nutritious ingredients to maintain good energy levels and morale throughout the workshop.
In the case that animal products are part of a dietary requirement, participants are asked to buy and bring their own supplementary produce.
