Fossil Creek Farm Trust has been created to heal our people, restore the native whenua and to rescue animals. The wai runs from the springs in the maunga.
Tui, Korimako and Kereru are abundant. Jude (nga puhi) and Lloyd are guardians of the farm and are driven by a desire to reduce suicide numbers in our community. Guided by aroha and her tupuna, Jude is on her waka connecting with whanau and communities to let people know that Fossil Creek Farm is a safe healing and nurturing place. A journey will start with one person and become whanau based in time, with wellbeing growing outwards into schools and communities.
All therapy staff have social work qualifications standing solid with animal therapy, nature therapy and equine therapy on the farm. Respite options range from fully self-contained to within the main whare. We take actively suicidal people who have nowhere else to go. We wrap around these people and start a journey that we are fully committed to, for as long as is needed.
