Now back in New York City, here are some final favorite pictures from my summer. After spending June and July in Israel/Palestine (another post is forthcoming on that), I worked for the second summer at Youth Empowered Action, and activism summer camp for teens. This year, I facilitated at the camp’s first session at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, a farm for animals rescued from farm factories. Check out the amazing camp at yeacamp.org.
Spending time with the animals (plus the passionate staff and campers) got me reconnected with my values and commitment for eating a plant based diet.
I quickly followed up with a trip to Mt. Crawford, VA where I met a lovely family along with their mini-horses, goats, chickens, and dogs.
