Carol Rathmann, Forget Me Not Farm

Date grant awarded: October 26, 2016

In Sebastopol, California, Carol Rathmann has established the Forget Me Not Farm, a remarkable haven for rescued animals and at-risk youth. The farm provides therapeutic services and programming to local schools and social services agencies, where young people learn to care for animals and gardens while spending quality time bonding with the animals and one other. “The Farm provides a haven for children, animals, and plants to interact, bond, learn, and heal together.”
