Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote compassion, cooperation and connection to the earth, animals and each other through sustainable care farming. Through sustainable care farming we can help feed the world, slow climate change, build community and bring hope and healing to vulnerable people.

Description

Care farming connects the healing power of horticultural therapy and/or animal therapy in a farm environment with vulnerable people who can benefit from meaningful time with plants and animals. The long term efficacy of care farming has been validated statistically in several studies in Western Europe where care farming is a common practice.

We take care farming to a whole new level.

  1. All our farm animals are rescued and their stories of rescue, recovery and ongoing happiness give hope to people who might also have experienced abuse, abandonment or neglect at the hands of people who had caregiver responsibilities.
  2. Through farm education, we create opportunities for people to meaningfully interact with the natural world and learn about food’s origin from the earth.
  3. We help build community by training people not only how to help feed themselves but also to help feed their communities through organic yard farming and urban agriculture.
  4. All of our work is rooted in practices designed to improve soil, air, and water as we grow food that will nourish body, mind and spirit.
