I just wanna say it is a dream of mine to go to the Woodstock Fruit Festival! It would be an amazing experience:)
So I am curious, have any of you gone to the festival? I would love to hear anything about it! Was the food amazing?( well obviously...) How were the activities? How was it being around so many people that were like minded?
Share your experience! Thank you! :)
Boycotting it! Deleted my account. No point as my fave PIONEERS won't be there :(
The 2014 VEGAN Woodstock Fruit Festival has been renamed and moved to Thailand because the Woodstock Fruit Festival in New York sponsors individuals who promote whey powder, deer antler, pig adrenals and other cruel and torturous products.
I was toying with the idea of going to the 2014 WFF until this controversy erupted about Harley and Freelee losing their "pioneer" status. Whatever that means. I don't buy the argument that they have been sin binned for advocating cooked alternatives to raw.
I think some sort of a power play is behind it. But that could be my paranoia talking.
At any rate, out of loyalty to Freelee and Harley, I now wouldn't have a bar of WFF.
Well then, I better make it there in 2014 before it's moved!
I went and loved it. would go again. Met many fantastic people and ate fantastic food. The fitness classes were great, many of the talks/lectures were enjoyable and educational, and bonding with like minded people for a whole week was an absolutely fantastic experience.
Woodstock Fruit Festival became a business. The more people you get to sign up via your link the more comissions you get. Freelee and Harley were probably getting too many comissions from 30bad and their videos and earning too much money out of Woodstock.
The other pioneers didn´t like it cause they were getting fô§k all from this. Now when Harley and Freelee can´t get any more comissions more money will go to other pioneers. Simple as that.
This is just my hypothesis and what I ve read on WFF facebook group.
That seems like a very plausible hypothesis. I don't see why else WFF would seemingly shoot itself in the foot like that.
I went to the first 2 but not going anymore.. very disappointed and saddened by the attitude and actions of the founder and the board of governors.
I was thinking about going. But after the childish elitist smug attitude that has been shining through by some of the other hypocritical pioneers and demoting H&F, there's no reason to go. There talks probably have the most objective substance and information and not just esoteric pie in the sky language as well, so the quality just went waaaaay down.
i am no longer going to Woodstock due to the whole freelee and durianrider no longer being pioneers. I will stand by Freelee and Durianrider forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
