On Monday, May 17, members of the Sanctuary One staff will provide an overview of their special care farm in the Applegate Valley. The presentation will describe how the farm’s programs nurture the human-animal bond in a way that is healing for both, while promoting environmental stewardship. Among these programs are the rescue of abused and neglected farm animals and pets, ecotherapy for at-risk youth and juvenile offenders, development of a large-scale organic garden to grow food for the Applegate Food Bank. This Community Forum will take place from 10:00 am to noon in the Presentation Hall of the RCC-SOU Higher Education Center at 101 S. Bartlett Street in Medford. It is part of a free monthly series sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at SOU. Refreshments provided starting at 9:30 am. No registration is necessary. Details are available at www.sou.edu/olli or by calling 541-552-6048.
