Joining the Dots under the watchful eye of Dobbin goat last month were students from Catholic Regional College who visited Edgar’s Mission as part of their studies. Meeting the animal residents, listening to a thought-provoking talk by Founder and Director Pam Ahern and being empowered to question all information presented to them, many students went away with a newfound appreciation of the animals with whom they share the world. Meeting and hearing the stories of our animal residents, witnessing the love and care they receive and even how to befriend a pig were all highlights of the students’ day. And certainly, the promise of a kinder future for all of us cannot be underestimated as the greatest positive of them all.

Recently we were fortunate to have a delightful group of young adults from Templestowe College join us for our educational programme. The day began with a talk from our inspiring Founder Pam Ahern. Pam took our visitors on a voyage, allowing them inside Pam’s compassionate world and how it all commenced. From rescuing a loveable piglet called Edgar to giving up her successful equestrian career, and sharing her story of how she ended up on the road where she dedicated her existence to liberating farmed animals and creating a more kind and compassionate world.
Just now. Edgar’s Mission rocks Parkville Youth Justice Precinct!
