If you choose, you can use that same amount of land to not only support your family but also help others heal along the way.
In the UK, they call this "care farming".
Basically it involves using your farm to "provide health, social, or educational care services" to people.
I love that the UK has a website devoted to it. Even more exciting is that Prince Charles held a recognition luncheon for National Care Farming Initiative's 5 year anniversary. Having that kind of support probably helps farmers find funding, which makes the choice to become a care farm a little easier.
Here's a video from one care farm called Highfields Happy Hens that works with kids involved in the court system.
I wish that we had some kind of directory of care farms here in the US. The ones that I am aware of are:
Green Chimneys (I've posted about them before here)
Forget Me Not Farm
Gentle Barn (I've posted about them before here)
Please feel free to add any that you know to the list. Maybe we can create our own care farming webpage for the US and then eventually around the world!
