Sanctuary One is a haven of peace in a world of chaos. That’s the message our volunteers tell us. Our service learning teens tell us “helping animals makes you feel like you were born to make a change,” and “I’ve become stronger since volunteering here.” Ten years ago, a small team of people created Sanctuary One to provide a refuge for animals and a healing place for people while promoting environmental stewardship. They envisioned the idea that people, animals and the earth are better together.
Ten years later, we come together to celebrate the anniversary of Sanctuary One, and to honor its founder and loyal advocate Lloyd Matthew Haines. Mr. Haines has always felt that animals and nature are the best instruments for opening a person’s heart. The other founders of Sanctuary One felt similarly. When one is healed, all are healed, because we’re all interconnected; that’s the holistic “One” in “Sanctuary One.”
At Sanctuary One, people of all ages have the opportunity to volunteer on a real working farm and experience nature’s healing power. We offer educational tours that open people’s hearts and minds; we invite groups from schools and youth-serving nonprofit organizations to visit the farm for fresh air, exercise and hands-on service-learning. We grow produce in our learning garden for local food banks. We mentor interns who dream of becoming the next generation of care farmers. We promote the ethics of mindful, sustainable living. And we provide a safe, loving home to rescued farm animals and pets.
As a care farm, Sanctuary One was the culmination of putting animals, people, and the land together to create health and well-being for all involved. Together we can accomplish this goal, and will continue to create magic for years to come.
