Tour of EAF

Earth Angel Farm

Earth Angel Farm (EAF)is 100% volunteer based, 501c3 nonprofit organization started in October 2012. EAF is one of 177 Green Care Farms in the US. Why a farm? A farm creates a mental picture of peace and necessity, where people can participate in a group or independently. In nature we find sustenance for our bodies and our souls. What is a Green Care Farm (GCF) A GCF combines agricultural activities and care services to improve the health of vulnerable populations. There are 177 Green Care Farms in the US. Ohio has the most with 13 active or planned farms. Where is the farm? At this time there is not one location for the farm but rather various sites, including Warren Greenhouse, and Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital which accommodate the specific needs of the individuals served through EAF. EAF goes where it is needed. Anyone can participate. What we have found in the past 4 years is that our volunteers have many different physical and learning disabilities with varying degrees of abilities. Some of our volunteers don’t have any disability but are involved to make life easier for others and learn about horticulture, healing the environment and improving their own health. By helping others we help ourselves.
