Opportunities for Engagement

We are hardwired for connection.

Research suggests that having plants around you is good for your health and productivity.

Trees provide beauty, fruit for people and wildlife, flowers for pollinators, shade, and places to gather. They take up carbon dioxide and sequester it in the ground while providing oxygen.

Therefore, planting more trees serves WFF's environmental goal. At the same time, we have an environmental and community goal—to plant more trees because people connect to plants and to one another.

Our basic food forest package includes a bench (the Beulah bench), which will provide a place for gathering. Here, people, plants, and nature can connect.

“Progress does not have to be patented to be worthwhile. Progress can also be measured by our interactions with nature and its preservation. Can we teach children to look at a flower and see all the things it represents: beauty, the health of an ecosystem, and the potential for healing? ”

― Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

Help us feed Jasper

SoL Criations is a sanctuary for rescued farm animals located in Endeavor, Wisconsin. We planted a food forest in June 2019 to provide food and habitat for their residents, whether they're on two legs or four.

“Here in our SoL ~ our “Space of Love", we wish to inspire a shift in perspective.

A new story of peace and gentle reverence for all life. Helping to reawaken our connection with animals and the Earth. Caring, advocating, educating and mentoring for the animals through making connections, empowering hearts and opening minds to make conscious, compassionate choices for the animals, the Earth and ourselves.

We look forward to sharing our SoL with you!"
