CowspiracyWednesday, October 29,  2014, at 7:00 pm. Green Cottage Industries presents a screening of the film Cowspiracy followed by a discussion facilitated by Michael Nabert and Peter Ormond.

The film Cowspiracy turns this silence on it’s head. Veganism and healthy dietary choices are a major part of the solution to a greener planet.
