This week’s episode takes us to the west coast where we meet Deborah Blum, founder of Goatlandia Farm Animal Sanctuary in Santa Rosa, California. Founded as a non- profit, animal sanctuary in 2017, Goatlandia's mission is “to have fun while helping animals, people, and the planet.” Goatlandia which began at their 2-acre Santa Rosa location began expanding in 2019 when they purchased an additional 20 acres of property in Sebastopol, CA. Goatlandia added an additional 18 acres last year giving them plenty of space to host public outreach events including goat yoga, vegan cooking classes, school tours and more.
Join us as we discuss what took Deborah from careers as a fashion designer, commercial pilot, and owner/operator of several San Francisco restaurants to running an animal sanctuary. Follow along as we explore the latest community outreach programs at Goatlandia including their Blues, Brews and (vegan) BBQ fundraiser and their upcoming "Kids For Compassion" Summer Camp.
