What is a Care Farm?
Kindred Spirits Care Farm is a place where people can come and reconnect to the earth, animals, nature and themselves. It is a farm where we have plants and animals living in harmony with nature, doing what they do as natural creatures. Yes, there is human intervention, but we will always do things in as natural a way as possible. We plant the plants, and harvest the fruits and veggies, but we do it all in harmony with nature using permaculture principles. All our farmed animals are rescues who, although they will have to live in fenced enclosures for everyone’s safety, will get to live natural lives and to express their natural behaviors.
Care farms are very popular in Europe. There are literally thousands of them in Western Europe, but as far as we know, there is only one other one here in the United States and they are in Oregon. Traditionally, care farms are farms that welcome people to come and heal by participating in farm activities in whatever way they can. The very act of participating, being included, being in nature, and having a meaningful task to accomplish can be incredibly healing. We want to offer this to kids, to veterans, and people recovering from physical illness and many others.
Kindred Spirits Care Farm is meant to be an inspiration and a place of empowerment for everyone. We would love to have you join our kindred spirits family. We invite you to follow us on Facebook to keep up to date on all the latest developments with this adventure.
