When in Ubud…

If you’re in the Balinese town, here are some top tips for a great trip


I can’t resist mentioning the hidden gem, Swasti Eco cottages ( It’s an incredible place to stay, complete with a permaculture garden and a newly developed menu. They serve a sensational jackfruit curry and cooling drinks to enjoy by the pool.


Ater exploring the waterfalls and mounting one of the many giant swings, I suggest a truly plant-based adventure. New Earth Cooking ( is a vegan culinary school one hour outside of Ubud. On Fridays, they invite you to join their team for an inspirational experience. Ater being greeted by a medicinal balanced tea, mangosteens and steamed pumpkin cakes, be swept into the jungle to forage fresh cacao from the trees, nibble on Gotu Kola and pop a passion fruit straight from the sky. Leave your shoes behind and wander through the rice paddies learning about Balinese permaculture and stagger back to the school to get involved in whipping up lunch.


Every Tuesday and Saturday Moksa (, the amazing restaurant and permaculture garden, host an organic farmers market. Enjoy the abundance of fresh snake fruits, dragon fruits and unforgettable durian. It’s a great chance to connect with growers and try the forgotten fruits.


Make sure to check out the Green School (, the pioneering school with a focus on forward-thinking education and sustainability. You can choose the go on a tour and be blown away by the way they have built this rainforest education space.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our August issue — time is really flying this year. I recently watched the BBC series Years and Years, a dystopian drama following the lives of a middle class family, set in the not so distant future. Though the script has come from the imaginations of its talented writers, it’s terrifyingly believable. Floods, disease, famine, displacement, recession, homelessness, the re-election of Trump, the supremacy of technology and nuclear war are all part of daily life. As things go from bad to worse, the grandmother and matriarch of the family delivers a powerful speech, telling her grandchildren: “It’s all your fault… Dear God, what a carnival. This is the world we built. Congratulations, cheers all.” And this struck a real chord with me. Programmes like this, even though fictional, serve as a reminder that we aren’t doing enough and that we need to continue spreading our vegan message far and wide if we want to tackle the huge problems that could be headed our way. The task in hand can seem overwhelming, but there are so many people helping to make the world a better place. This issue, we meet Derek Sarno who is bringing veganism to the masses through his collaboration with Tesco, we talk to Friends of The Earth about the importance of increasing the amount of trees in the UK, Maria Slough interviews Oggs founder, Hannah Carter, who is working tirelessly to put the egg industry into decline and Samantha Fung discusses her powerful artivism. Let’s keep heading in the right direction.
