The vision of Open fArms is to allow those who wish to reconnect to the Earth through farming to establish relationships with the soil they nourish, the plants they grow, and the natural world in which they exist.

To be a sanctuary and place of rest where social activists and healers can rejuvenate—allowing them to return to their work of creating equality for those who have suffered injustice, oppression, and hunger with a well-rested spirit and body.


To create a space for those who wish to further understand how to be sustainable in their homes and lives by sharing farming practices that may be used while creating their gardens.


To offer the Retreat as a teaching facility for educators.
