I made a decision in January that I would start to focus more on animal welfare and the environment in my vegan outreach. As much as I enjoy the social aspect, cooking and of course, the FOOD, my heart is with the animals.
Now that I’m back on track with weekly blog posts, I want to hear from you. What topics do you want to read about? What issues do you think will spark discussion? What recipes or types of recipes are you curious about?Continue reading I Want To Hear From You!→
On my first day of training at Coming Home Animal Sanctuary, I was shown the animal cemetery. This is the place where all the animals near and dear to the sanctuary founder have been laid to rest. They are given a proper burial and a stone to mark their time on earth.
On my ride home from a week long vacation in Virginia I read Jasmin Singer’s memoir Always Too Much and Never Enough, a book I highly recommend. Toward the middle of the book, I found myself reading about an experience Jasmin had at a sanctuary I’d never heard of before. The most surprising thing was that it is a mere 30 miles from my home!
How could I have not heard of Coming Home Animal Sanctuary? I make a pilgrimage to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York a couple times a year but am always disappointed I can’t go more often due to the 90-minute drive. To have a sanctuary so close to home made me very happy. I immediately checked out their web and Facebook pages.
But then something fantastic and wonderful happened less than two months later; I received an email from Coming Home’s founder. She had found this blog and I was humbled by the high praise she gave it in her email. She asked me if I knew anyone who might be interested in a part-time caretaker position.
