The Kindness Farm
Kindness Farm was founded from the belief that we are all born imbued with kindness, & that kindness is not only the most compassionate, but also the most practical model for the world to live by.
We aim to care for people & Earth by regeneratively & sustainably growing nutrient-full vegetables & fruits; cultivating community education of balanced farming practices; & providing freshly harvested nutriments to our houseless and low-income neighbors in need.
Kindness is the natural instinct in all of us to take care of each other, and our planet; which we believe is distorted by a world that forces us to choose our own survival over helping others.
We believe that we can change that, together.
Bottom Line for Portland
Nutritious food in the hands of those who need it most while nurturing a resilient, active community that shows up for one another. This year, in our first growing season alone, our vibrant produce has contributed to over 5,500 meals and produce boxes, while engaging over 2,200 volunteer hours.
"Fresh vegetables are hard to come by for us, and ensuring that there is a variety has been amazing. We are thrilled with having produce to count on every week." Angela Owcarz, Feed the Mass (Providing hundreds of meals per day to houseless folks in our community)
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Kindness Farm, one of our most important values is to create a platform for marginalized members of our community where everyone has a voice and feels supported and at home. Not only do we make sure our nonprofit partners that distribute our produce share these same values and promote it in their organizations, we also amplify this in our internship programs and educational opportunities, and ensure this is something we are always working on and seeking feedback about.
