Coming soon - Wildflower Newcastle

Newcastle's vegan scene lost a little something special a few weeks ago when The Painted Elephant announced it would be closing. I was a big fan of their inventive, fresh, locally sourced plant-based fayre, so when I heard chef Asher Turnbull was teaming up with his equally creative friend and colleage Jessie to launch a new venture, I was fairly excited!

It's always nice to see a new vegan cafe opening in the North East, and Wildflower - which opens at 283a Westgate Road on Tuesday 15th November - sounds like a welcome addition to the ever-growing crop of quality establishments making Newcastle their home.

Dubbed a 'creative kitchen and event space', Wildflower will marry art, music and events with the exciting, vibrant plant-based foods that made Painted Elephant so special. In future, the space will play host to a plethora of different events, including themed dinner parties, still life drawing sessions, upcycling workshops, vintage and art markets and cooking demonstrations, bringing something a little different to the area.

The people behind Wildflower are hoping to raise £1,000 to help buy vital equipment and furnish the space. It would be so great if the vegan community could get behind them and make a small (or large!) donation to help them realise their dream. If you could spare a pound or two, you can donate at their Just Giving page here. You can also like Wildflower on Facebook here.

Please feel free to share this post amongst your friends and fellow vegans - let's help Wildflower to hit their target and give a local business a strong start to establish themselves and grow their offering.

  2. This problem has led into the demand of weight loss programs that promise to offer effective weight loss but never actually live up to meet this end. Jiaogulan immortalitea
