Here at Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary we envision a new food system where plants, animals, and people thrive within the natural world through a sustainable and regenerative system of mutual aid. Therefore Wild Earth is a nonprofit farmed animal sanctuary, but also an organic & veganic regenerative permaculture project!  We wanted to not only allow people to connect with farmed animals, we wanted to go further in teaching folks how to grow their own organic food and live in a sustainable way.  On the farm we focus on sustainability education, community outreach, and offer a space for collaboration.  Nestled on 200 acres in the foothills of Appalachia in Kentucky, the state rated dead last for animal protection, we offer classes, tours, and opportunities to participate, teach, share, and learn in an effort of resilience building.   We’ve given love and sanctuary to rescued pigs, ducks, and dogs in our first year alone; have hosted and given tour to hundreds of interested visitors; have created more than 10,000 square feet of organic, no-till educational gardens; and have taught or hosted classes on vegan permaculture, homesteading, wild foods & re-wilding, and important ecological and farmed animal issues. Wild Earth is very new!  Your support will help us to really get off the ground by building rescued animal barns and enriching the lives of our current and future sanctuary residents  (rescued pigs, chickens, ducks, and turkeys); allow us to sustain our Wild Earth Internship Program to have full-time interns from around the world living and working on the farm year-round; to hire our vitally important first employee to manage the daily farm operations and create a fundraising program for the nonprofit ; and to expand our veganic educational gardens, humane education department, and permaculture outreach programs. Thank you so much for your support!  Please share far and wide!
