With less than a month to go, we’re gearing up for our biggest fundraiser of the year, our Summer of Peace Open House, happening on July 9th from 12 PM to 4 PM.

This is a great opportunity to visit the farm sanctuary with younger children and we’ll have plenty for them to do, including a bouncy castle, face painting and vegan ice cream, not to mention hanging around with our donkeys and miniature goats!

We’ll also have opportunities for people to learn about the treatment of animals on farms and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and see how farm animals live in an environment free from harm and abuse.

In addition, the tasty vegan BBQ will be up and running, along with our bake sale, popular tombola raffle and our Cedar Row merchandise tent. So come by, relax and enjoy the day at Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary. We can’t wait to see you here.

Skilled Worker Visits

As you can imagine, running a farm sanctuary is a lot of work with the majority of the focus being on animal care and well-being. Because of this, the focus on the surroundings becomes secondary despite daily efforts at upkeep.

If you’ve been to Cedar Row, you know that we take great pride in how the animals that call our sanctuary home are treated and that we also take pride in the way their homes look and are cared for. Flowers are planted, stalls are clean, fences are mended, etc.

After a busy start to the year, it’s time to shift focus towards items around the farm that need fixing and replacing so we’ve scheduled two skilled worker visits; one on May 21st, 2016 and the other on Jun 4th, 2016.

Essentially we’re looking for people who aren’t afraid to (safely) swing a hammer, handle a saw, dig post holes and repair fencing. There are other jobs to do as well. The skilled worker visits run from 10 AM to 4 PM and we’ll be providing a great vegan lunch for everyone. These differ from our regular work visit because we won’t be cleaning out the barn or other animal areas but you’ll definitely be interacting the our animal residents throughout the day (they’ll act as the supervisors!).

If you’re remotely handy, we’d love to hear from you so send us an e-mail at cedarrowfs@hotmail.ca. We really appreciate the help and support and can’t wait to see everyone.
