The folks at Animal Place, a sanctuary for neglected farm animals, have asked me to let Sacramento Vegan readers know about the Music in the Meadow fundraiser that will be held on September 22nd in Grass Valley.
The day-long event will feature the music of Runnin 4 Cover, the Hiwatters, the Flower Furnace, Melissa Olsen, and Joan Hall. Vegan food and other vegan products will be available for sale, and there will be a silent auction offering an array of items that any vegan would love.
The highlight of the event will be an appearance by author John Robbins, who will be discussing the impact factory farming has on sustainability and the earth. According to the Animal Place website, "John’s life is dedicated to creating an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet."
John Robbins is the author of the vegan classic, Diet for a New America, and The Food Revolution, a thought-provoking book that brought about my decision to switch to a vegan diet nearly ten years ago.
Music in the Meadow will be held at the Animal Place Sanctuary at 17314 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley on Saturday, September 22nd, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets, which can be purchased online, cost $25 for adults and $12 for children under the age of 12.
