We're thrilled to announce Enlightened Farm's Solid Roots Employment Program! As a facet of the Hansen Foundation, the farm allows for healthy outlets and holistic modalities for clients being treated at Enlightened Solutions. Even after successfully completing treatment, clients come back to relax and donate their time to the farm . Because of this, we are establishing a new program to enable those people who enjoy farming to continue to live out their passion in a healthy environment.
The program is designed to offer an opportunity for individuals in recovery to develop a sense of grounding through employment, community, fellowship, and education at the farm.
Individuals will be employed between 10 months and a year to gain skills around organic growing, environmental restoration and regeneration, healthy relationship building, responsibility, communication, leadership, beekeeping, compost, and holistic lifestyle.
In the program, employees will work to grow food for the Enlightened Solutions Treatment Center, Enlightened Detox, and our very own, Enlightened Cafe! They will also grow and sell food to the public at Farmers Markets.
This program is designed to allow individuals to develop a sense of security and belonging while maintaining stable employment and important skills, so that they can be successful in the next chapter of their lives.
