Therapeutic Farm


Therapeutic Farm

The Forget Me Not Farm’s flagship program nurtures relationships between children, animals and gardens. Since its inception in 1992, Forget Me Not Farm has helped thousands of at-risk children and youth break the cycle of abuse.

A program of the Sonoma Humane Society, the Farm offers animal-assisted and horticultural therapeutic activities that provide a haven for children, animals, and plants to interact, bond, learn, and heal. The farm serves a variety of social service agencies that bring groups of children to the farm weekly for hour-long sessions.

Volunteers are screened and carefully matched to work with each group and as the children visit the farm over extended periods of time they develop healthy relationships with positive adult role models, the animals, and the land. This experiential learning process not only allows children to heal but to also grow and thrive.
