That was what happened near the Student Union on Friday and Saturday.
One tent hosted by CASNR represented the importance of farming and
Another tent, hosted by the Vegetarian Club and People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals (PETA), demonstrated the positives of a
vegetarian and vegan diet.
The CASNR tent was titled “Surviving Without Ag?” and displayed items

The students working the tent are a part of the organization, The FARM

students handed out free grilled samples of pork and chicken to anyone
walking through the tent.
