Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary
Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non profit farmed animal sanctuary and organic permaculture project, nestled on 200 acres in the rolling green Appalachian foothills of Irvine, KY. Wild Earth envisions a food system where plants, animals, and people can thrive. We offer a space to share, learn, and grow.
Rescuing Farmed Animals
Animals in need are rescued and live their lives on the sanctuary, where they rewild, participate in the local ecosystem, and form positive relationships with humans as opposed to their former experiences of abuse, abandonment, and neglect. Many are victims of our industrial agriculture system. Visitors can bond with rescued animals and learn alternatives to destructive food systems.
Through learning, teaching, and practicing permaculture we are creating a new food system at Wild Earth. We plant a wide range of annual and perennial plant varieties which produce food for our community. Common production of vegetables involves pesticides, GMOs, bone/blood meal, and manure, often directly supporting factory farms. We can revolutionize our food system by growing food for ourselves and communities, and by supporting local veganic growers.
Cultivating Awareness in Our Community
We foster an atmosphere of education through courses and collaboration. Together we work to create abundance, food sovereignty, and regenerative systems.
We Need You!
Are you interested in positive action to help animals, our communities, and the environment?
