The Rev. Becca Stevens from Thistle Farms in Nashville – a CNN Hero for 2016 for her ministry to help sex trafficked and prostituted women recover and heal – will speak at Tikkun Farm‘s Raise the Roof Spring Benefit Tea, at St. Thomas, Terrace Park on Saturday, May 6 from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Stevens will share what she’s learned over 20 years about social enterprise and the power of love to heal and transform every body.
This fundraising event will generate funds to help repair Tikkun Farm’s barn so we can begin using it to expand our programming to offer healing experiences for trauma survivors. Tikkun Farm is 3.5 acre non-profit farm in Mt. Healthy, near Cincinnati, that uses its lands and buildings to create spaces and experiences of healing, restoration and repair. We have a long-term vision to offer integrated healing experiences for people recovering from trauma. Currently, Tikkun Farm offers a cooking education program for youth participating in a local after-school and summer program, land for Bhutanese refugees to garden and grow food, a maker’s space for immigrants and refugees to create products they will sell through their social enterprise, and education for neighbors seeking to learn more about trauma healing, animal care and gardening.
