New vegan food sources in Victoria – Vegan Hippie Chick Cafe and The Very Good Butchers, also Lucie from RASTA sanctuary and Chris Cook’s What in the World update

Karen Rousseau is a Vegan mom (since 2011) and she’s so convinced about the benefits of the plant based lifestyle she’s opening the Vegan Hippie Chick Cafe on Fort Street in Victoria BC in March 2017.

James Davison is a chef trained in French cuisine, he met Tania Friesen while they were working in a vegetarian restaurant.  This weekend they’re launching The Very Good Butcher shop in the Hudson building on Douglas Street, offering all kinds of plant-based alternatives for the veg curious and the local plant based community.

Lucie Cherney moved the RASTA farm sanctuary from Alberta to Chemainus BC two years ago.  We check in with Lucie to hear about some of her farm friends and how they survived a particularly cold and snowy west coast winter.

And, Chris Cook with a What in the World update.
