Easter Vigil – Saturday, 20 April 2019

https://www.facebook.com/events/366730817387348/

The Easter egg symbolises new life, fertility and rebirth.

Ironically, day old male chicks in the egg industry are gassed or ‘macerated’ (ground up alive), the ‘layer hen’s’ reproductive system is completely exploited and when their egg production slows down, they are sent to slaughter and replaced with young chickens who will suffer the same process.

The Parkwood Egg Facility confines 200,000 lives. Stand with us and Animal Liberation ACT shining light on these unique and intelligent individuals who endure a miserable short life, locked away in windowless sheds.

Bring signs with messages of kindness and hope for these birds and a candle to light in solidarity. LED candles can be more effective if it’s windy.

Little Oak Sanctuary Session – Saturday, 25 May 2019

https://www.facebook.com/events/2145077735606709/

Join us on the afternoon of Saturday May 25th as we celebrate International Respect for Chickens month at Little Oak Sanctuary!

A tour of the sanctuary will be provided where you can meet the animals, hear their stories and learn about the plight of their species in Australia. We’ll also be providing a supper with chicken and egg free delights – think vegan quiches, egg free mayonnaise in that potato salad and egg free meringues!

Time & Location

25 May, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pmBetween Bungendore & Braidwood

About the Event

A tour of the sanctuary will be provided where you can meet the animals, hear their stories and learn about the plight of their species in Australia. We’ll also be providing a supper with chicken and egg free delights – think vegan quiches, egg free mayonnaise in that potato salad and egg free meringues!

Meeting at the carpark at Mick Sherd Oval in Bungendore, we will then drive in convoy to the sanctuary. We will leave at 1pm sharp so please be on time as we cannot wait for you as it will hold the event up and it is not fair to other guests.

The event is contingent on weather and if we need to cancel we will refund all tickets if we are unable to reschedule the event at a suitable time for each guest.

Please wear sturdy shoes, a warm jacket and bring a hat, sunscreen and water!

*If you have an SUV or 4WD with good ground clearance and are happy to take your vehicle over a small creek crossing you can drive yourself, please choose the “own 4wd/SUV” ticket option – this is so we know how may people we need to provide a lift over the creek to.

*Kids under 3 are free but please let us know if you’re bringing them 🙂

Vegan Coffee & Cake – Second Wednesday of every month

Monthly coffee & cake meetup. Come and meet fellow vegans and those interested in veganism over a cuppa for a chat.

Despite the name we often eat more than just cake and drink more than coffee – all welcome!

Please be mindful that this event is vegan-friendly. You don’t need to be vegan to attend, however we request that you order vegan food & drink at this event.
