Farm Sanctuary Twilight Tour, Saturday, September 9th at Farm Sanctuary in Orland
You won’t want to miss this tour of the sanctuary that includes inspiring presentations by Gene Baur and Susie Coston and a cocktail hour featuring vegan cheese, wine and appetizers. There’s no better way to indulge in the vast array of delicious, plant based snacks available than in the tranquil presence of the rescued animals at Farm Sanctuary. Come and enjoy compassionate food and company, and show some love to the rescued farm animals we are so fortunate to know. This is one of my favorite places to visit!!
