Edgar’s Mission is a not for profit sanctuary for rescued farmed animals that seeks to create a humane and just world for humans and non-humans. It is set on 60 peaceable acres in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range at Willowmavin, Kilmore. The farm sanctuary currently provides life-long love and care to over 250 rescued animals.
Edgar’s Mission was founded by Pam Ahern and named after her first rescued pig, Edgar. Edgar Alan Pig, aka “the pig who started it all” arrived on the 10th of May 2003 – Edgar stamped firm his trotters on the soil that was to become Edgar’s Mission. And so, the foundation of Australia’s much loved farm sanctuary was laid.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Edgar’s Mission I am gathering the team from across Melbourne Cooking Classes and Melbourne Food Tour to assist with the provisions of some fine food.
We have decided on a Spanish/Mex inspired menu to include roast cherry tomato with romesco sauce on polenta cake, chickpea, zucchini, and dukkah fritters with tahini sauce, green and white gazpacho soup with garlic toast and Mexican bean con carne on crunchy corn chips with chipotle mayo.
This is followed by paella with capsicum, tomato and green olives and a Mexican salad of cucumber, spanish onion, avocado and roasted red capsicum in cos lettuce cups.
If that sounds like your kind of food then we would love you to come and join us for The Edgar’s Mission Foundation Day fundraiser.
Tickets are $65.00 each – bookings online here. Ticket numbers are strictly limited, please book early to avoid disappointment.
The event will be held at Melbourne Bowls Club, Flagstaff Gardens, CBD on Friday 10th May 2013. 6.30pm -9.30pm. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be provided for the first two hours followed by a cash bar.
And everyone’s favourite, Mr Nice Guy Bakery, will supply their scrumptious cupcakes for dessert!
Silent auctions will be run throughout the evening with a range of exciting items supplied by our generous sponsors The Cruelty Free Shop, Natio, Ecostore, Safeclean and Crafty, Herb Doctor, Soul Sisters Harmony, with more to come. There’s even a range of beautiful artwork supplied by Niki Bergman, Edgar’s Mission and others.
Come along and celebrate Edgar’s Foundation Day with like-minded people, hear from Edgar’s Mission’s Founder Pam Ahern and contribute to the future of Edgar’s Mission!
Fundraising activities will be conducted throughout the night, including a silent auction and Edgar’s Mission merchandise for sale.
I hope lots of you can come and join us in supporting this great organisation.
