Why do you grow and sell flowers?
The farm situated on the 40-acre rural property surrounding our emergency shelter offers the opportunity for survivors to heal in the fresh air while growing strong in body and mind. Fresh food from the farm is used to prepare nutritious field-to-table meals for adults and children living at our shelter. And adult survivors may choose to help grow the flowers on our farm in exchange for a weekly stipend and job training.
