Our vision for Full Pocket Farm grew from our interest in serving our community and the desire to share the things we enjoy with others.
We combined our experiences as service providers, teachers, farmers, and artists to create a place that provides opportunity to learn, grown, create, and explore. Our core team possesses degrees in areas of the Arts, Intellectual Disabilities, Education, and Agriculture.
At the Farm we grow flowers, create ceramics, grow healthy food, use tools to build useful things, and care for animals - and we think anyone who wants to can do it too!
Our family includes a person living with a disability who is happiest when his pockets are full of the things that bring him joy. Aren't we all?
We believe in openly sharing our lives working side by side to help everyone obtain their own "full pockets!"
Full Pocket Farm is part of a rapidly-growing movement called "Care Farming," which utilizes nature-based activities to achieve therapeutic benefits, commonly in a farm environment. You can read a little bit about it here: www.carefarminguk.org/care-farming-explained
