Also known as Celestial Therapeutic and Ornamental Gardens, Inc, DBA: Celestial Farms
A Not-For-Profit Organization
Celestial Farms began in the spring of 2000. The original goal was a simple one: to assist people of all abilities to enjoy the therapeutic benefits caring for a garden can provide. This was accomplished through providing assistive gardening tools, installing raised garden beds, and instructing clients how to garden in a way that is beneficial to them. Special gardens were also installed, like the one at Rutledge Pearson Elementary School, which includes “peace” tiles made by the children on benches that surround the garden area. Over time, however, we felt a greater calling and in 2008 we expanded the organization to include all aspects of farming.
The new farm has a sensory garden, with plants to touch, taste, and smell leading up to the front door of the farmhouse. Other gardens are scattered over the grounds, a new surprise around every corner. Everything that you can imagine happening on a farm, goes on here: education programs, farming co-op, horse boarding, animal rescue, and even pony parties. There is a full time preschool on site, and camps during the summer. We also have a store and a resource library available. Classes are held on site to learn habits of healthy living, increase your skills in gardening or preserving, and many other helpful options.
