I had been meaning to visit Cedar Row for two years before I finally found myself there.  This sanctuary for farm animals saved from abuse, neglect and slaughter, just outside of Stratford, Ontario is run by a family of four and relies solely on donations to maintain caring for their flock of farm animals such as pigs, donkeys, turkeys, chickens, goats and geese.
Earthgiven Kitchen summer of peace 2013 (1)I attended their annual Summer of Peace fundraiser and had a lovely day enjoying the beautiful voice of local singer Emm Gryner, getting up close and personal with the rescued animals, devouring vegan desserts and connecting with like-minded people.  Unlike other animal fundraisers I’ve been to, Cedar Row was fabulously 100% vegan.  (This event was more than a month ago now; my apologies for the delay in posting!)

Photos of the day…
