A Compassionate Community For People And Animals
Offering Farm-Based Wellness services for children, youth and adults
Triskele Rivers is a 33-acre Care Farm located in Hood River, Oregon. We provide farm-based wellness services integrating the foundational principles of Animal-Assisted Learning and Yoga Therapy practices. Our services support the development of a strong sense of self, compassion and interpersonal skills. Working within our care farm community allows for opportunities to listen, observe, and interact with others in order to gain a profound sense of awareness that influences how we respond vs react to life’s challenges and opportunities. Through active experiences at Triskele Rivers, participants are able to transfer the skills they gain on the farm to everyday life.
Our programs offer the opportunity for:
Therapeutic Yoga and Mindfulness practices
Space for quiet reflection
Self-expression through art materials
Farm experiences on our 33 acres
What is Care Farming
Care Farming is the use of farming practices as a way to provide healing, social/emotional, educational and overall wellness services to communities. Care Farming combines caring for animals and people in environments that are safe and respectful. Presence, mindfulness, and collaboration are the integral aspects of meaningful engagement in these communities.
To create a community where people come and connect to animals, nature and themselves. Through the use of Care Farming practices, we envision a community where people and animals grow and thrive together. A place where people can slow down, quiet their minds and re-nourish their senses leading to improved health and well-being.
