Visit/Volunteering at Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary & Dinner at Good Life Cafe

Repeat of the trip Stacy organized in April :) Hope you can make it!

Join us for a visit/volunteer day at Cotton Branch Animal Sanctuary in Leesville, SC.   It's about 2 hours west of Charleston, near Columbia.  We will be meeting at the Starbucks on Rivers Ave at 10:30 on Saturday morning so the group can carpool. Carpooling is optional, but we would still like to leave town around the same time.  If you would like to meet us at Cotton Branch, I expect we will arrive around 12:45 - 1pm.

We will likely be there until around 6.  Would be a good idea to eat lunch beforehand or bring it, as well as a snack. Our plan is to join the Columbia Veg meetup for dinner at the Good Life Cafe at 7pm. Here are the details:  http://www.meetup.com/ColumbiaVeg/events/180964952/) 

We are going to volunteer and help out, so please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.  Also we advise bringing the following:

- WATER 

- WORK GLOVES

- SUNSCREEN (if it's nice out)

- BUG REPELLANT

- HATS

- PRODUCE (apples, lettuce, sweet potato, carrots, tomatoes) 

 

 

 

 

 

Please check out their website and Facebook page.  DONATE if you are financially able to do so.  They do wonderful work and they need support.  They will also be taking time out of their already busy day to give us a tour.

    This sounds like it could be a good time. I'll meet you outside of Starbucks, if I can recognize you. I haven't done meetups before. :)

    Thanks so much everyone for coming out. It was a such a fun time hanging out with you all and it was wonderful we were able to help Jan out with her pig garden and get a chance to give her animals a feast :) We will have to do another one again soon!
