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.
What is a Care Farm
A Care Farm 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 our Care Farm community.
Our approach is simple. Slowing down and turning our senses inward allows us to develop curiosity, clarity, and self-awareness. We become more aware of how our energy affects our relationships, causes continual patterns of stress, and may even block us from achieving our goals. Yoga Therapy assists us with this process by supporting clients as they discover and relieve habitual patterns of embodying tension/blocked emotions while Equine & Animal-Assisted Learning provides great feedback to how we are engaging with others and being perceived. When combined, participants are provided with a holistic approach that supports personal growth, awareness, and healing.
