How you help Tikkun Farm does so much with so few financial resources because volunteers generously support our ministries. Because of 100+ volunteers/week Tikkun Farm distributes 300 crockpot meal bags/week that feed 1200 people. Volunteers teach art, writing and cooking to children and adults. Our farm is slowly become a permaculture lab and ecological sanctuary because of volunteer gardeners. There is so much potential for good on our farm... and it's possible because of volunteers!
About us Tikkun Farm, a 3.5 acre farm in the neighborhood of Mt. Healthy in Cincinnati, intends to be a place of healing, restoration and repair cultivated through meaningful work and spiritual practices.Tikkun is a Hebrew word meaning “repair” or “restore”. The phrase Tikkun Olam captures the collective life purpose of the Jewish people to “repair the world”. This phrase has many layers of meaning from personal healing to global reconciliation, but at it’s core it means to join with God in repairing what has been broken: lives, buildings, the land, relationships, villages and nations, bodies, etc. Mary Laymon and Greg York bought the former dairy farm in 2010. While they are slowly repairing the buildings they have welcomed people to live in community on the farm, offered land for Bhutanese refugees to farm, invited local non-profits to meet in the farmhouse, offered a maker space to refugee and immigrant women for fiber arts projects, hosted an after-school cooking program for underserved neighborhood youth, hosted retreats & workshops, served community meals, taken in animal rescues, welcomed a local drum circle and offered spiritual direction. They long for Tikkun Farm to offer many kinds of healing and repair. We hope a person who finds shelter at Tikkun Farm may come to know the truth that they are Beloved.
