Five Freedoms Farm

  • 2 people are interested

We run a small nonprofit animal rescue/sanctuary (www.fivefreedomsfarm.org) and are seeking help at our barn on Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon every week. The task involves cleaning horse stalls and sometimes helping to unload or move supplies. We have 4 stalls that need cleaning everyday, so it only takes about an hour. Time is flexible but we prefer afternoons/early evening.
We have 3 mini horses, 3 goats, and 2 potbellied pigs (plus we rescue senior dogs at our house).
Great opportunity to spend some time with awesome animals while helping out!

About Five Freedoms Farm

Mission Statement

to care for animals in need in a place that strengthens the Deaf community through its exploration of DeafSpace, entrepreneurship, art, community building, leadership, research and education.

Description

We are in the process of expanding our dog rescue work into something much larger over the next several years! Five Freedoms Farm, also known as F3, is an ambitious endeavor that keeps animal rescue at the center of what we do and further incorporates community development, social entrepreneurship, environmental sustainability, and service learning. What sets us apart from other sanctuaries is that we are partnering with the Deaf community for the farm's creation, implementation, and operation. Why the Deaf community? We are both sign language interpreters: Nancy was raised by Deaf parents and is a native signer; Jessie has been a part of the community both professionally and personally since 1995. We both feel humbled by our connection to this beautiful and vibrant community. We want to celebrate Deaf-World and use our farm to show the broader community that being Deaf is not a deficit, but a unique and valuable way of living in the world. Our animal sanctuary will save the lives of animals in need while simultaneously increasing the cultural wealth of the Deaf community. We aim to become a vehicle that propels the passions of young Deaf animal-lovers, scholars, entrepreneurs, educators, leaders, and change-makers ... all by way of activities and programs around animal rescue, care, and adoption.
