Whether you’re new to the city or just passing through, there are lots of ways that you can get involved with the Vegan Edinburgh Community. We have social groups, activism groups and lots of online spaces where you can meet like-minded vegans.
If you would like to meet fellow vegans online, there are a couple of online communities you can join:
Vegan Edinburgh Facebook Group: Where members share their food recommendations, vegan tips, the latest news, and have healthy (but friendly!) discussions. It’s a private group, but you just need to answer a couple of quick questions to join.
Vegan Edinburgh WhatsApp Group: Get messages on your phone from fellow vegans. It’s the perfect place to ask for recommendations, share your success stories or arrange to meet people.
Vegan Edinburgh Meetup
Would you like to meet like-minded vegans in Edinburgh? Our relaxed group regularly throws meetup events in vegan and vegan-friendly venues across the city.
Most of our meetups include 4-6 people, giving everyone a great opportunity to get to know each other. It’s the perfect way to meet people if you are new to Edinburgh.
Previous events have included casual brunches, fancy dinners, exploring markets and even roller skating!
Find us on Meetup to find the dates and locations of our upcoming events. We hope to see you soon.
Whether you are looking for vegan recipes or eating out tips, there are lots of great Instagram profiles based in Edinburgh and Scotland you should follow. Here are just a few of our favourites:
