Connect

As vegetables depend on an abundant community of micro-life in the soil, long-term recovery depends on an abundant community. SPF provides volunteer opportunities, a chance to build supportive relationships, and community connection for people to build relationships that bolster long-term recovery and transform the stigmas of addiction.

Grow

A seed knows its purpose - to grow, make flowers, set seeds. When you know you're purpose, it's easy to grow. People battling addiction often lose their deep sense of purpose and struggle to grow. SPF provides volunteer and employment opportunities for the recovery community to rediscover their purpose and self-worth through meaningful work.

Serve

A farm works through people giving abundantly to plants, and plants giving abundantly in return. SPF provides the opportunity for people in recovery to rediscover their self-worth by giving abundantly through meaningful work and service.  All proceeds to the farm go towards addiction recovery and back into the farm.

"My experience in treatment would not have been the same without working on the farm. It has changed how I view my body, the choices that I make to stay healthy, and how I want to live my life. Sharing my story and working side-by-side with the community has helped me with my recovery and will, hopefully, help someone else."

Tim Templeton, Ranch House Recovery Alumni & Simple Promise Farms Volunteer

Testimonials

"Simple Promise Farms is a great place for community and opportunity.  This place has given me so much and shown me different ways to connect with the land, nature, and people.  I love being able to give back and share what I have learned here.  This place is all love."

Chris Weber, Ranch House Recovery Alumni and Simple Promise Farms Employee

"Very simply, I find peace and joy and connection when I'm out on the farm and in the garden. Not just the physical connection to the earth and the food that I put into my body, but also to the community that exists around the farm.

 

When I look deeper, I see so many similarities between growing vegetables and growing in sobriety. There's a whole lot of work that needs to be done before a seed is planted. Once sprouted, it needs regular care and maintenance before it ever bears fruit. Similarly, sobriety needs a strong foundation and regular attention.

Simple Promise Farms and Ranch House Recovery have given me hope and purpose. I am so very grateful."

Kevin Sease, Ranch House Recovery Alumni and Simple Promise Farms Employee
