Gene Baur discusses "Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day." This event is co-sponsored by Compassionate Action for Animals.
“Farm Sanctuary is one of the most extraordinary places on earth. This book replicates that amazing place, showing you why living the Farm Sanctuary lifestyle is good for you, good for your health, good for the environment, and, of course, good for animals. Buy this book for a friend, and change a life!”--Joan Jett
In his new book, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day, he shares lessons learned from his nearly 30 year career working to change the way society views and treats farm animals as President and Co-Founder of Farm Sanctuary, America’s premiere farm animal protection group. Baur’s story is singular: from the cornerstone experiences that impassioned him to dedicate his life to this mission; to building Farm Sanctuary from its humble beginning selling veggie hotdogs out of a VW van at Grateful Dead concerts, to what is now the nation’s largest farm animal protection organization with hundreds of thousands of supporters and three expansive sanctuaries in California and New York; to the legislative battles to protect farm animals (who comprise the largest population of abused animals on Earth).
Compassionate Action for Animals is a Minneapolis-based organization that advocates for farm animals and helps people move towards a plant-based diet. More information is available at www.exploreveg.org.
