Episode 27 – Veganville, OR: A Sustainable, Loving, and Compassionate Destination
My partner and I had the privilege of visiting Veganville and having a conversation with the incredible founder, Cecilia Mialon, back in February of 2021. Although the pandemic was raging on, we took a masked and socially-distanced tour of her place before sitting down to learn more.
Not only is Veganville a place of love, compassion, and acceptance for non-human animals, this small farm is a sanctuary for the wildlife and the natural world as well. As a Certified Wildlife Habitat, Veganville decision-makers consider what consequences their actions will have on the land with each decision that they make. Vegaville has a heavy focus on permaculture, sustainable living, and animal care. They also involve the community in their work and invite them to dive deeper though their WWOOFing program.
The Veganville website says the following about the founder, Cecilia: “She has worked closely with Dolphin Project and Free The Mojave Dolphins to help educate the public on the plight of dolphins in Japan and the suffering of dolphins in captivity around the world and the importance of conserving our oceans. She believes everything that is impacting our environment negatively today is linked to the modern-day agribusiness and the public simply isn’t aware. She believes Veganville encourages that awareness so that the public is able to make that connection for themselves.”
