Nature provides peace of mind. Getting outdoors also stimulates physical exercise. Providing activities that people enjoy outdoors increases the likelyhood of them participating in the theraputic process that heals the soul.
Some people prefer the solitude of nature and benefit from activities that are just between them and the earth. Farm therapy provides this experience in a safe and tranquil surrounding.
Participates have access to raised bed gardens to till, weed, and nurture. There are mulberry, blueberry, pear, and peach fruit trees to prune and pluck. And there is compost pile to churn into soil.
Teach your kids to enjoy nature by growing and eating crops themselves. Pick blackberries and make a pie at our new farm facility in Suffolk, with over 3 acres of blackberries in bloom (June-July).
"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
