Hidden Gems: Tikkun Farm

Volunteer your time to city farm life or receive some restorative help of your own

Fall fun on the farm looks a little different at Tikkun Farm, Mt. Healthy’s 3.5 acre city homestead. Its volunteers are not dressed in silly costumes and there’s no sight of spooky skeletons to be found. Instead, you’ll find a peaceful, restorative space for families to both volunteer their time to city farm life or receive some help of their own in the Nourishing Families program.

Tikkun Farm offers visitors a glimpse into farm life through programs like Creation Care: hands-on volunteer planting, weeding, mulching, tending and harvesting the land. Weekly garden projects are available in short shifts like sorting organic material, composting, digging, tending gardens, organizing supplies and maintaining tools. Or, gather with the weekend group for Saturday morning play in the soil.

A farm is not complete without animals! Families can sign up for various animal care opportunities like putting the Guinea hens to bed, collecting eggs, refilling water bowls, feeding the two resident pot-bellied pigs, fostering baby chicks in the spring and leading farm tours for visitors. While little kids love helping out with farm chores, Tikkun Farm also hosts middle- and high-school students with after-school activities and job training related to environmental work.

Family Farm Days

Saturday mornings during spring, summer and fall is Family Farm Day, the day where the entire family does farm activities together. Start out with preschool-friendly yoga in the morning, a full farm tour, meet the animals, do projects like preparing a family meal to share, creating nature art or drumming.

Nourishing Families Free Market

Tikkun Farm has a passion for feeding children and the community through the Nourishing Families market. Families in need of food support may shop one day a week on Tuesday, Friday or Saturday. If residing in the Mt. Healthy area, residents can sign up for crockpot meals, a curated meal bag with all of the ingredients for an easy dump and go meal.
