Since 1999 the mission of Vegetarians in Paradise has been to offer our friends in the vegetarian community a nesting place to roost awhile and share information about a lifestyle that may keep us flying around a few years longer than our non-vegetarian friends.

In other words, this nest is a gathering place for us fine-feathered birds who enjoy being just what we are--vegetarians
