One of guest speakers will be Gene Baur, author of Farm Sanctuary, another will be Rory Freedman, co-author of the hugely popular Skinny Bitch, there will also be representatives from the Humane Society and other animal and environmental protection groups. Looking through the activities scheduled, it certainly seems like there will be something there for everyone --from music, to meditation, to lectures on composting and "vegan green," and talks on health and nutrition, and animal welfare.
