 WHEN:  Sunday, September 26 from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.

 WHERE:   Golden Gate Park, S.F. County Fair Building at 9th Ave. and 

 Lincoln

 WHY:  Inspiring speakers, live entertainment,  and FREE SAMPLES!!!

 HOW MUCH:  $5 suggested donation, students, kids, seniors with I.D. 

 FREE!

 

 Most of you receiving this email are not vegetarians, but I know many

 of you are interested in healthier eating, animal rights, protection

 of the environment, sustainable agriculture, or the politics of

 government and big agribusiness.  AND I KNOW YOU ALL LOVE FREE FOOD

 SAMPLES!!!  Did he say free samples?!  Where?!  I gotta get me some of

 that!  I'm going to that veggie thing in the park!

 

 Once you've grabbed lots of FREE SAMPLES, enjoy TWO INTERNATIONALLY

 RENOWNED, COMPELLING, INSPIRING SPEAKERS:  JOHN ROBBINS AND HOWARD

 LYMAN, along with many others.

 

 John Robbins is the only son of the founder of the Baskin-Robbins ice

 cream empire, and was groomed to follow in his father's footsteps, but

 chose to walk away from Baskin-Robbins and the immense wealth it

 represented to pursue his dream of a healthier society.  He is

 considered to be one of the most eloquent and powerful spokespersons

 in the world for a sane, ethical and sustainable future.  The

 widespread media attention he has received has included numerous

 appearances on national shows including Oprah, Donahue and Geraldo.

 When John spoke at the United Nations, he received a standing ovation.

 Howard Lyman (the Mad Cowboy) was sued alongside Oprah Winfrey after

 appearing on her show, because he spoke out against the modern

 practice of feeding cattle to other cattle.  Howard's life story is

 captivating.  He was a fourth generation rancher in Montana, educated

 in modern chemical agriculture.  He turned a small, organic family

 farm into a large corporate chemical farm with over five thousand head

 of cattle in a factory feedlot and thousands of acres of crops.  In

 1979, a spinal tumor nearly left him paralyzed, leading him to

 reevaluate his farming practices and his lifestyle.  He has since

 become one of the leading advocates for small family farms and has

 been at the forefront of educating the public about the true dangers

 of Mad Cow Disease.  If you read FAST FOOD NATION, you'll love his

 book MAD COWBOY.   For more info on Howard, visit

 Please pass this on to anyone who you think might be interested in

 attending.  Last year we had 2000 in attendance, and we're shooting

 for 3000 this year.  And yes, all well-played vegetarian jokes will be

 met with good humor and witty retort :)

 

 Thanks for your support.
