Please RSVP (required) to NJveg.org/rsvp, NJveg.org@gmail.com, or 609-557-7077 (text/voice).


Socially Distanced Masked Hike/Walk & Takeout #2

Mansfield Community Park, E Main St, Columbus NJ 08022

Join NJveg for a hike/walk.  Appropriate social distancing and mask are required.  Walk the paved, approx. 3 mile roundtrip Kinkora Trail in Columbus (just 2 blocks from NJveg’s PO Box).  We’ll meet at the far (east) end of the parking lot.  Optional prior stop to get takeout at Properly Fueled (order online), a vegan-friendly restaurant at 1-1/2 Crosswicks St, Bordentown NJ 08505.  Raindate is Sunday June 14 (note the restaurant is closed on Sundays though).

Please RSVP (required) by TBD to NJveg.org/rsvp, NJveg.org@gmail.com, or 609-557-7077 (text/voice).


Additional Hikes/Walks, Online Meetup, and More

Let us know if you have an idea for another central NJ park that has wide paths and doesn’t get overly crowded.  Extra bonus if it’s near a restaurant where we can get vegan take-out before or after!  One idea is close to Trenton, which would be convenient for both Lady and the Shallot & Savory Leaf.  We’re also looking for suggestions in other central NJ areas.

We’re gauging interest in an online meetup — just to say hello, or participate in some virtual activity.  If you’re interested in either or both, please contact us at NJveg.org@gmail.com, or 609-557-7077 (text/voice).  Other ideas are welcome!  We hope to see you in the near future!
