Movie Night Out at the Sanctuary

Sat Nov 09, 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM EST
Asha's Sanctuary
Brownies, Juniors

Due to the nature of the sanctuary and the health and safety of the animals, outside food and beverages are strictly prohibited. All programs cost $25 per girl and $25 per adult and have a max of 24 girls and 12 adults unless otherwise stated. All programs include a guided tour where you’ll learn about common practices in animal agriculture, and get up close and personal with a farmed animal. You’ll also learn how we can make a huge impact for animals just by our food choices. All programs also include an Asha fun patch and a healthy meal. Asha’s Sanctuary is a vegan organization and girls will learn the advantages of a vegan lifestyle. Subject matter at some grade levels can be heavy or shocking if girls ask about the treatment of animals during normal agriculture practices. The sanctuary director would be happy to answer questions prior to your program. Girls will get a snapshot of what it is like to be living a vegan lifestyle.

After the guided tour, girls will enjoy a healthy dinner and watch a farm animal-themed movie: Babe-A Pig Goes A Long Way (1 hour, 31 min.).  It tells us a lot about the emotions of other animals and encourages us to question why humans love some animals, but eat others.  It stars James Cromwell (voice of farmer Arthur Hoggett) who is a superhero to animals off-screen.  He has spoken up to countless viewers that turkeys are just like us in all the ways that matter most and that we should leave animals off our plates.  Movie popcorn included.
