The Farm occupies four beautiful old buildings on a three-acre garden. It has laid waste for a number of years but it is gradually being raised up again to its former dignity by the love and hard work of the people who live here. This is also the hope we hold out to those who come here seeking renewal for their lives and those of their children. As you work alongside us restoring the buildings and grounds, as you live together with others in an atmosphere of love and responsibility, as you take up again the everyday tasks that are the fabric of life, you regain a sense of your dignity and begin to see that restoration is possible for you too: that anything that has been lost can be found again.
Many hours are spent cultivating the garden, growing the food we eat and the flowers that beautify our environment. Working in tandem with nature, we provide for ourselves and others. This is a training ground for us: as mothers we work to give our children all they need to thrive. We give at the right time and in the right way, always aware that they are delicate and need great care so they grow as strong as they can and are productive adults.
Our education and training component leads us to take responsibility for our lives. As we continue in the program, we take on increasing amounts of responsibility, gaining awareness of our capacities and strengths. In an atmosphere of support, we dare to take on more than we thought we were capable of, stretching up and out, to become the people we were meant to be.
The Farm is a not-for-profit community organisation. It is supported by the generous help of people in the community who share our vision of restoring the lives of women who have been affected by addiction.
