The Animal Place Veggie Club is for anyone interested in veganism. We welcome vegetarians, vegans and non-vegetarians! Each month we meet at the sanctuary for a potluck and get an opportunity to connect and learn more about diet, gardening, animal rights issues, etc.
The club meets at the Grass Valley Sanctuary. Dates and times have yet to be determined, but we plan on starting in May or June of 2010.
To be put on our Veggie Club email list, please contact Marji Beach.
