Emotional support ... donkeys?

Willowpark Farm helps mothers, children in women’s shelter

When Sarah Harris purchased an old homestead property in Edelweiss in September 2020, she did so with the intention of creating a space for women and children dealing with trauma by creating a not-for-profit “emotional bonding garden.”

“I have personal experience of going through the women’s shelter, police, and other organizations, and [I] understand how a nice day out and a distraction is invaluable at a time of stress,” Harris explained.
