Sanctuary One at Double Oak Farm southern Oregon is the first nonprofit care farm in the United States. Care farms are farms where people, animals, and the earth work together for mutual healing. They envision a future where care farms are as commonplace in the United States as libraries, hospitals, and colleges.
Sanctuary One helps people of all ages experience nature's power to heal by volunteering on a real working farm; they provide educational tours that open people's hearts and minds; they invite schools and youth-serving nonprofit groups to visit the farm for some fresh air, exercise, and hands-on service-learning; they help teenagers who are in trouble learn how to make better choices; they mentor interns who want to become the next generation of care farmers; they promote the ethics of sustainable living; and provide a safe, loving home to rescued farm animals and house pets.
Sanctuary One is located in Jacksonville, Oregon
