Staff Mission Statement

A Farm of Therapy is A Hawaii nonprofit organization and applied for 501c3 status The mission statement by Patricia McIntyre, president

A Farm of Therapy is a farm of medicinals utilizing organically grown food as medicine.  Our farm is based on the production and use of medicinal organic plants to nourish the spirit, mind, and body.  We recognize the connection between our senses, our thoughts, our food and our health.  We also recognize the connection between our own health and the health of our planet.  We therefore strive to utilize and teach off grid alternative power techniques, green building, and organic agriculture and aquaculture to leave the smallest footprint on our struggling planet.  We are fortunate to be in a natural paradise of rainforest, wIth waterfalls,  gigantic trees and mountains, blue pools and streams and a view of the Pacific Ocean where humpback whales help entertain us from November through April, but we know that the our green living principles and techniques can be utilized in any environment,
Our founders have medical and therapy backgrounds so we incorporate traditional and nontraditional wellness techniques into our approach to living and teaching the interconnectedness of all things.  We know that the toxins advertised and accepted as necessary to life and food on our planet have resulted in greatly increased cancers, genetic damage, and neurological disease among others.  We believe the cure is in reversing the cause and in utilizing the natural medicinal and spiritual qualities of the indigenous and specifically selected plants, as well as holistic products and techniques to heal both people and planet.
