Here at Nourishing Hearts we tailor our programs on individual strengths and provide additional support and modifications to meet unique needs of individuals and families. We believe our community is strengthened by diversity, inclusion, respect and justice for all people. We diligently work to remove barriers to access our services for full participation in our community. We actively challenge discriminatory myths, assumptions and stigmas while supporting diverse and unique abilities of all people through empowerment, self-agency and participation.

Nourishing Hearts Wellness Care Farm offers a quiet and safe environment for people with all different abilities. The farmstead allows for many opportunities for outdoor activities, exercise and contact with animals and nature. The care farm nourishes a sense of community, provides a place of belonging, acceptance and meaningful engagement.

The therapeutic benefits of life and work on a farm have been studied and documented for years. Along with its safe, quiet environment with less sensory challenges, the farm gives people the chance to do meaningful, purposeful work, which creates a sense of accomplishment. The farm activities can easily be tailored to an individual’s interests and abilities.
