Farm Based Youth Mentoring

At Nature Nurtures Farm, we believe children deserve and benefit greatly - socially and psychologically - from time and attention from responsible adults, and we're committed to providing a place where they'll feel safe and valued.


Youth in the mentoring program spend two hours a week participating in farm activities and building relationships with the animals and their mentor. We ask mentors to make at least a year commitment to mentoring. Youth referred by social service agencies may be eligible for free mentoring. For more information about mentoring please email:
