Wellness Care Farm

Nourishing Hearts

ADHD, ASD, FASD and Developmental Disabilities​

For children & youth that are experiencing symptoms of ADHD, out of necessity kids are often constrained, in order to fit within social environments but here on the farm they are encouraged to be their own selves. I believe in setting children up for success and for this reason the farm is organized to be supportive of fast minds and fast bodies. It offers a place of belonging for those who struggle to fit in and to be accepted just as they are, this also includes those on the autism and fetal alcohol spectrums and for those described to have a developmental disability. The farm environment is empowering with the attitude and approach of "yes we can",  "let’s give it a try", and “how can we make this work?”, as I am curious to the strengths, abilities, and esteem that can be discovered and strengthened through a positive therapeutic relationship of acceptance, curious exploration and a place to belong.
