More than 80 vendors, representatives from top NYC vegan restaurants, and insightful vegan personalities gather at The Seed: A Vegan Experience for two days of shopping and exploration. The schedule of talks and demos ranges from film screenings to cooking lessons on how to make vegan ice cream or sweet potato Moroccan stew. Keynote speaker Joel Fuhrman MD, author of Eat to Live, joins Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier and other notable vegans to deliver talks on performance nutrition, animal advocacy, and how to get started on a vegan diet. Bust magazine is also hosting a craft fair, featuring DIY vegan art from independent artists. Proceeds from the event go toward Mercy For Animals and the New York Coalition for Healthy School Food.

The Seed: A Vegan Experience

Runny tofu. Limp lettuce. Bland steamed vegetables. That's how a lot of people view vegan food, and The Seed: A Vegan Experience's founder Harvey Fung was no exception. But that opinion changed in 2011. That's when the avid muay thai practitioner and owner of 82Mercer saw the documentary Forks Over Knives, which set him on his path to veganism and led him to discover that vegan cuisine can be hearty, satisfying, and, most importantly for a foodie like him, decadent and delicious. In fact, it's not unusual for him to have a slice or two of moist chocolate layer cake that leaves him "sated and happy" and able to walk past traditional patisseries without licking the window.

After realizing that his discovery couldn't be kept to himself, Fung decided to share his love of vegan fare with The Seed: A Vegan Experience, an endeavor to reach out to vegans, omnivores who really like tempeh, and vegetable skeptics all at once with inspiring talks, cooking lessons, and samples from NYC restaurants and earth-friendly vendors. The proceeds from the event will benefit two nonprofit organizations: The New York Coalition for Healthy School Fund, an organization that works to improve the health of New York's students statewide, and Mercy for Animals, a national organization dedicated to preventing animal cruelty.
