Garden Therapy

In the midst of all the chaos in the world, growing one’s own garden has perhaps become more of an act of self-preservation than ever before. Here in Gentle World, our vibrant veganic gardens continue to bring comfort to mind and heart, as well as inspiration to those who visit Gentle World with the aim […] Read more

Letters We Live For

“You’ll be happy to hear that I’m still vegan and I don’t have any plans to change this for the rest of my life… Making the transition was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I hope I can inspire people along my journey the same way you inspired me when I visited […] Read more

A Day to Remember

The past couple of months have been eventful at VeganLand, and with the help of your support, we have been able to achieve some significant steps forward.

May 16th

This August will mark the third anniversary of our acquisition of 34 magnificent acres of agricultural land on the Big Island of Hawaii. This breakthrough was made possible in 2017 thanks to a philanthropic loan in recognition of all Gentle World has done, over the past 50 years, to contribute to the—now snowballing—rise of veganism […] Read more

50 Years of Veganism!

Way back in 1970, Gentle World was not yet even a dream in the minds of its founders, but these two individuals were already beginning to lay the foundation for all that their organization has since achieved, by cementing their own commitment to what became, in February of this year, the 50th anniversary of their veganism.

In observance of the 50th anniversary of his veganism, Gentle World’s co-founder Light is interviewed by Butterflies Katz. Tell us briefly how a man born with a “normal” name came to go through life with the name “Light”. I was given the name Burton; a name which originally meant Bright Raven or Fortified Homestead.
