500 raw milk conversations at Green Living Show in Toronto on the weekend

Here’s a brief report from Paul Ciaravella, who helped organize the  Glencolton Farms presence at the show:

The family that drinks raw milk together, comes out together on a Sunday to talk to the public about raw milk at the Green Living Show in Toronto. Bravo!

The family that drinks raw milk together, came out together last Sunday to meet the public and share their experiences with raw milk at the Green Living Show in Toronto. Bravo to all who participated!

On behalf of our efforts over the weekend show, we would like to thank all of the volunteers who came to help. We had a great show; at least 500 people showed interest in the raw milk right-to-choose issue. They especially loved our t-shirts. We had a large amount of donations and overall the show was a success. The shirts shown in the photo will be available on the blue bus tomorrow.
