Columbia-Greene Chapter Corner

Victory for Vegetarians

Columbia-Greene organizer Joan Zacharias took a break from planning veggie dinners and potlucks to campaign for a seat on the Sierra Clubís New York State Executive Committee - and won. Zacharias ran on an explicitly pro-vegetarian platform, noting the widespread environmental damage caused by eating a million animals an hour in this country. Joan and her slate of "John Muir Sierrans" - a group of Sierra Club members fighting for more grassroots democracy in the nationís largest and oldest environmental organization - swept the election. Zacharias plans to advocate for locally grown plant-based food at all Sierra Club events, and she is part of a national network of activists who are pressing the Club to start promoting low-impact, plant-based eating. A committee to work against factory farms in New York State is now forming. If you are interested in working on vegetarian or factory farming issues with other Sierra Club members, please contact joanzach@taconic.net .

Greene Sprouts

A new group for vegetarian children is sprouting up in Greene County. "Greene Sprouts" is the brainchild of vegan brother and sister Juliana (age 6) and Michel (age 5) Catardo, of Windham. They are looking for other veggie children to join the group, for fun, support, learning and family get-togethers. If interested, e-mail goveggie@taconic.net  with your name,
address and phone number.


We look forward to hearing from you
