Nourishing Hearts

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Sharing Shack ​ (Opening Spring 2018)

Nourishing Hearts' roadside Sharing Shack will provide an opportunity for the community to access local, fresh high-quality fruits, vegetables and eggs that are cultivated naturally on the farm. The Sharing Shack will also feature art and woodworking products uniquely created by participants in the care farming program. This farm-gate access promotes local food security and community connection while also raising funds to support the care farming program.

Self-Care Memberships for Helping Professionals

Here at Nourishing Hearts Wellness Care Farm, we strive to live a self-caring lifestyle in both our personal and professional lives. We live our lives with a deep connection to nature through wildlife conservation, therapeutic farming, sensory gardening and animal caring. As experienced helping professionals, we recognize the importance of self-care and invite helping professionals to join the Nourishing Hearts Self-Care Community

Nourishing Hearts Wellness Care Farm is an inclusive community that welcomes and creates natural engagements for people of all ages and abilities.  The community is a safe environment  for "Conscious Collisions" where people have the opportunity to know each other; people who otherwise may not have the chance for their paths to cross. At Nourishing Hearts, through the sharing of different passions, interests and abilities we can come together to participate, collaborate, and create while supporting one another,  building friendships and sharing  joy.

Conscious Collision meaning "the intentional act of intersecting with people with diverse talents, interests and expertise to co-create through collaboration. Collision moments are often facilitated in co-working spaces - either by chance or design"(Janet Frood, Founder of Horizon Leadership Institute).

This is our hope and dream for Nourishing Hearts Wellness Care Farm as an inclusive community

that welcomes and creates natural engagements for people of all ages and abilities.  

I know in my heart that it is through engagement that stigma, hate, and all the "isms" can be replaced with genuine understanding, love and appreciation♥

Community building is a field of practices directed toward the creation or enhancement of community among individuals within a regional area or with a common interest. We also form community partnerships and  believes in the synergy that comes from collaboration.
