Great Sage is a vegan restaurant which is part of the Conscious Corner located in Clarksville, Maryland. Conscious Corner is a family of businesses dedicated to promoting healthy and mindful living by focusing on animal welfare, the environment, and community. Great Sage’s bold menu features international flavors and organic ingredients with dishes such as their French Onion Burger, Pumpkin Empanadas, and Sage’s Famous Carrot Cake. Every Thursday, Great Sage hosts a live music event to feature local musicians in the area. Along with supporting local musicians, Great Sage also supports non-profit organizations by hosting benefit days. On September 27th, 2015, Great Sage hosted a benefit day for The Vegetarian Resource Group to which they donated 10% of proceeds of the day’s sales. A fellow volunteer and I handed out our Vegetarian Journal and other literature to anybody who was interested. Several patrons visited our table with inquiries about veganism and vegetarianism, other local restaurants, and about VRG itself. People were particularly interested in the local restaurant guide, and the younger restaurant-goers enjoyed VRG’s coloring books. It was a pleasure to represent VRG that day in a welcoming and warm atmosphere at Great Sage.
