Wellness Care Farm

Nourishing Hearts

Vision

To foster the holistic health and well-being of individuals and families of all abilities in Elgin County and surrounding communities through hands on participation in nature-based experiences, therapeutic farming, culinary experiences, wellness activities, animal-assisted interventions, and counselling services. Helping people to access healthy foods and to participate in an inclusive, safe and supportive environment that nurtures personal growth with a re-connection to nature, farming and community.

Mission
To create an ecological, sustainable and inclusive community that inspires, supports, and educates people of all ages and abilities through participation in farm-based, animal-assisted and nature focused activities. Community health and well-being is cultivated through wellness workshops, self-care retreats, respite, therapy and counselling services.

Values

This poem captures the essences of collaborative relationships and community building. Nourishing Hearts embraces a wholehearted approach to living and being with others and the earth. Together we share our strengths, spirit and experiences not as experts but through reciprocal relationships where we learn, heal and grow together.

Vision, Mission and Values

Don’t walk in front of me,
I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me,
I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend.
