    Im visiting New York from Norway this week to celebrate my birthday and would love to win tickets to The Seed! There are hardly any vegan restaurants or happenings in Norway so that event will be so amazing to go to! 🙂 I have bern a vegan for the last few years and a vegetarian since I was 12. However, my boyfriend is not vegetarian so would like to take him this weekend so he can see how much great vegan stuff there is out there! 🙂

    Being a part time vegan/animal rights blogger, I’d love to win tickets to bring back new information to pass on.

  • Hi, I would love a chance win these tickets! I am super excited about this event. My husband and I have been vegetarian since being high school sweethearts 12 years ago and decided to take the plunge into Veganism about 7 months ago. We’ve never felt better. We live breath and eat nutrition and natural health and are so passionate about this lifestyle. Getting to be immersed in it for the weekend would be a dream since it is so hard to find like-minded people/restaurants in our area. Thank you for the opportunity and Good Luck to all. ;o)

      Hi, I would love the opportunity to attend. I am new to Veganism and have been trying to educate myself and my family in order to be kinder to our planet and to reap the physical and spiritual benefits of being a Vegan. It’s never too late to learn, change and make a difference.

  • Viviane

    I love being vegan and feel this would be so inspiring. Thank you for this chance to win tickets.

  • Christy8200

    I would love to attend this event because it sounds incredible! All the amazing food is an obvious reason to attend. But, I’m also super interested in the speakers and films. While looking at the schedule, I realized I’ll have a difficult time deciding where to be when. I have never looked at a show where I actually plan to show up right at the starting time, and likely stay until it closes both days. I am also looking forward to meeting other vegans, and learning about new businesses.

  • Trish

    Hi! I would love to attend The Seed. I started running three years ago and became vegan less than a year ago. I feel fit and strong! I’d love the chance to be around other like-minded people to share thoughts and experiences. I’d also love to try all the fabulous foods!

  • Jes Silvani

    I would loOoove to win a ticket! Five year vegan, just moved to NYC and surprise surprise, am now totally broke! Happily broke though 🙂

  • Jeremy Lopez

    Hello, my name is Jeremy and I have changed my eating habits dramatically in the past year. I have lost 50 pounds and at the same time that I changed my eating habits I have also become much more atheletic and joined a dragon boating team. This year I am going to world championships on hong kong. What really inspired me and got me to make a change for the better was thrive in 30 which let me really see things about foods I would not have seen and see someone brendan brazier who is an athlete that is vegan which really gave me that extra push to really try m hardest to become vegan. In a way he is an inspiration and an idle because he is someone who is highly athletic the way I want to be. I have not been active my entire life although I have always wanted to and I have really seen in the past year how the way you eat effects your performance. This is why I would like to win and go I am only 17 and between traveling and practice I just can’t afford to go. If I could go I would take the opertunity to learn as much as possible and meet one of the people who really inspired me

  • I am in NY for this week only and would LOVE to have a chance to attend this event! It looks incredible (and a far cry from many of the events I have ended up at….with nothing to eat!). It is such a sadly rare event that is dedicated to all things VEGAN, and to just be immersed in every way…sight, sound, taste, touch. All I can say is WOW. (And PLEASE!)
    Whether I am there or not, I wish you all best of luck with the coordination, execution, and enjoyment of the weekend. Success will only bring more of all you have to offer and more is certainly needed!

    my name is Carmen and my fiancé dan and I have completely changed out diets. fruits and veggies are the bigger portion of our meals and we have completely cut out animal products. i am a law student and he is in marketing though currently going through health problems. however, with our new diet he has been holding up well! though we have busy schedules we manage to make green smoothies every single day and realized how much better it is than coffee! (which we have also cut out) going to this event will help us continue on this path. we are new yorkers and although there are a ton of vegan options here, we feel like getting together with other vegans will help us tremendously! sometimes living in a big city makes it hard to find other vegans! thanks!

    This is an amazing event!

  • Onesweetone

    I became a vegan in 1998 when I met a cute former child celebrity boy-band. 😉 After my own research, I continued on and I truly believe it helped my body when I began having health complications 7 years later. Sadly, I also became a big starch/carb eater. Now more than ever, I want to learn all I can about what I can do to make better choices for me and my non-vegan family. Though I’m not extreme in my views, I believe it’s important to take responsibility with our choices for the planet and influence others to do the same. Thanks!

  • Jills

    I would love the tickets. My husband and I are in town this weekend for our 5th anniversary. Nothing would cap our weekend off than some time at what is sure to be a fabulous event

  • Gwenofcrowhaven

    Although I am already a vegetarian, I am contemplating the transition to full-on vegan, This experience would offer me the opportunity to educate and expand on my knowledge of the vegan life-style, and encourage me to stick with it, as well.

    With many health issues, I am always exploring ways to mazimize nutrition, and broaden my culinary exposure to different cuisine, cooking methods and recipes. If it is full-flavored, it provides an emotionally as well as physically satisfying experience, and as someone who considers food one of life’s great pleasures, it satisfies on a soul level, too.

    Also, as a long time animal rights advocate, as well as a food service professional (in health care) the knowledge gained would not just stay with me, but would be shared by me with others, personally and professionally.

    Meeting supportive and like-minded people, being open to learning everything that I can, gathering recipes and cooking methods, and net-working and making connections to
    reinforce my move to veganism, as well as enjoying yummy food—Would be a delight for me! (I have lost 90 lbs in the last 18 months, a journey towards feeling better, being healthier, and having more energy. Anything that provides incentive to continue on this path would be appreciated, as well.)
