“Bay Area Veg Meadow”

"Bay Area Veg Meadow" at Animal Place

"Bay Area Veg Meadow" at Animal Place

Even before facebook started, we’ve been a fan of Animal Place for many years.

With Animal Place’s support, we’ve had an annual tour and picnic for several years at their Vacaville location.  So when we heard they needed to relocate, a few of us got together and organized a fun(d)raiser for them in June 2008.   ( See past blog posts for more info: The Fun(d)Raiser | The Fun(d) Crew )

Our fun(d)raiser provided much needed funds towards expanding to their new Grass Valley location, where they named a meadow for us.  Our meadow is very suitably in the picnic area, because we do love to eat :-)

Their barm warming is tomorrow, and we’re heading up to check out the new sanctuary and definitely “Bay Area Veg Meadow”!  Email us if you’re also going, maybe we can rendezvous.
