The Pure Planta volunteer team are inspired to celebrate plant based foods, creativity and entrepreneurship with Brisbane and the world.
Whatever your cooking abilities, lifestyle, knowledge, or budget, we hope you enjoy seeing, tasting & exploring the possibilities of plant based foods (with some creativity & entrepreneurship added to the mix).
Enjoy the tastes, health benefits, guilt-free eating, and environmental benefits.
