Willow Farm
Willow Farm supports a sincere, dedicated community based on contemplative principles that serves others through training and programs for social and individual transformation. We combine contemplative practices with trainings in elder care, the process of dying and death, culture and living arts, natural medicine, and the cultivation and preparation of wholesome, nutritious food. Willow Farm is a non-profit organization dedicated to the wisdom of becoming more present and thoughtful in our lives through the practice of caring for others. We believe that quality of care is enhanced by this intention, and that societal models for the end-of-life experience can also be improved (for caregivers and receivers alike). We are committed to promoting the relationship between living an awakened life and dying with love and dignity.
