Healing Springs Acres is a farm where we grow food to give away.

We PLANT Generosity.
We PROVIDE Food.
We PROCLAIM others can do the same!

THANK YOU for helping make that happen!

North Carolina contains 4 of the nation's 10 worst concentrations of food insecurity.  Two of those counties are our neighbors. We currently grow a couple of acres of vegetables -- and have been since 2011.

All of the food we grow is distributed fresh through local partner not-for-profit organizations in central NC. We have over 20 acres available to expand our growing and giving - but not the resources to make use of it.  We've been able to manage the project on a small scale without asking for regular outside support.

WITH YOUR HELP, our goal is to grow more.  Additional support means we can plant additional acres in future seasons.  Thank You!

HOWEVER, the solution to hunger isn't for Healing Springs Acres to try to get endlessly bigger and bigger. There are many ingredients to "solving" hunger.  We suggest that two of the most important ones are for more folks to reclaim the capacity to feed themselves, and for more folks to grow something to give away in the mean time.  This "Neighborhood" of support is making that happen!

Healing Springs Acres only needs to get big enough for us to be able to do this full time.  That way, we can grow more food to give away AND devote time to hosting conversations about how others can do the same.  With your support we will also be launching a podcast in the coming weeks to explore what people are doing to end hunger in their own communities and to offer insight and encouragement for that work.  That's another way you can help multiply the impact of Healing Springs Acres!

Along The Way, the conversations we have here are encouraging others, and hopefully YOU, to grow something to eat and something to give away.

Seeds
$1 or more per month

Every bit of support helps!  One seed at a time you can help plant generosity.


If you just want to participate in the conversation about working to end hunger, this is a great way to connect!

Fertilizer
$5 or more per month

Seedlings need plenty of nutrients and fresh organic matter to enrich the soil for their tender roots.


The Fertilizer level of support enriches our work at a deeper level and helps us grow healthier organizational roots.

Cultivators
$25 or more per month

The long hard work of the summer is cultivating the soil to enhance growth, add nutrients, and fend off competing plants..


Cultivators, whether with a tractor or a hoe, dig in and offer support to help us get through the long rows each month.

Waterers
$50 or more per month

Water makes the crop.  Coincidentally, the monthly water bill around here is about $50!


Waterers offer a level of support that nurtures strong growth and help stave off the always threatening drought of resources.

Planters
$100 or more per month

Planting deep generosity at this level of support gives a vital vote of confidence in the work of Healing Springs Acres and lets us know you believe in the world we're trying to help build.


This is as close as you can get to coming on out, picking up a hoe, and helping us continue to:


Plant Generosity

Provide Food

& Proclaim that Others Can Do The Same!

Collaborator
$500 or more per month

OK - You're all the way in for helping break the systems that make people hungry.


You're ready to help create a world in which people reclaim the power to feed themselves healthy food grown locally.  You want to participate in a conversation about moving beyond providing food for people who are hungry today to  building communities in which people don't need such drastic help feeding themselves.

Who else do you know...?  Let's go!

Instigator
$1,000 or more per month

If you're in at this level, you've got ideas of your own.  Let's talk...

What do you think is possible for ending hunger and helping people reclaim the power to feed themselves?  How can we help make it more effective?
