SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – VINE Sanctuary is hosting a children’s program called Pasture Pals from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: August 1, August 8, and August 15, at our sanctuary located at 201 Massey Road in Springfield, Vermont. Children ages 6 – 12 will have the opportunity to learn about compassion for all living beings through the sights and sounds of a farm sanctuary. Participants will learn about animal intellect and emotions, empathy, relationship building, and so much more!
Learning sessions will be led by Aimee Bittinger, an elementary school teacher with a passion for both children and animals. She has designed each session so that children will not only learn about the animals, but also give back through a volunteer service activity.
All children must be accompanied by an adult to ensure the safety of all. Please arrive on time, as we cannot accommodate anyone who misses the introductory safety talk.
Remember to bring water, sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, and anything else that is needed for spending time outdoors! If a snack is brought to the sanctuary, we ask that it be vegan, which means free from all animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs.
