Sowing Seeds of Humanity Education Workshop Deadline Slightly Extended

Sowing Seeds of Humanity Education Workshop Deadline Slightly Extended

I have gone to other workshops put on by the Nova Scotia Humane Society, and they are always VERY interesting, as a person who is anti-PETA. But no one can deny that the group is very sincere in their goals. No one who has ever tried to cook a tofu-turkey and have it turn out looking like an actual turkey could say that a person isn't committed to the cause. I have registered for this workshop, and I hope a lot of other people go to this as well - when I got my confirmation of registration last night though, the lady said she'd have to email back next week whether or not it was actually going to go on because there hadn't been enough interest yet to say that it was going to happen for sure. So I am putting the word out in as many spots as I can to make sure that people know about it. So I'm putting it here so that readers can make their own informed choice whether they'd like to go to Bridgewater on May 31st! Read on!
