Month: February 2017

Schedule now open for 2017 "Reminiscing on the Farm" sessions

With summer on it’s way, even if it doesn’t feel like it with this new snow, we are starting to prepare for our “Reminiscing on the Farm” program again. The “Reminiscing on the Farm” program for seniors will be offered on Wednesdays, beginning May 24 through September 6, 2017. Programs typically begin at 10:30 a.m. and conclude close to noon.
This unique program takes place in our rustic barn or on the green lawns of Nature’s Edge. Seniors have the opportunity to enjoy an outing to our peaceful farm setting, interact with a variety of farm animals and share stories with our staff, volunteers and with each other, as we all reminisce together about days on the farm, country life and a love of animals. Senior groups are invited to bring a picnic lunch. An apple dessert will be provided at the conclusion of the Reminiscing session. Family members and caregivers are invited to attend and participate. Volunteers are invited to help with the Reminiscing sessions. All volunteers must complete volunteer forms.
The “Reminiscing on the Farm” program is provided through a grant from Bader Philanthropies – Helen Bader Foundation. Click here for an informational brochure. To schedule a session, call our office at 715-859-6670 or email us at naturesedge@citizens-tel.net

 

Spring Fever

With the warmer weather on its way we are getting back into shape and getting ready for a fun-filled and busy summer. Much to the disappointment of the horses this also means they have to come out of winter vacation and start getting into better shape as well. With the help of our good friend Ed the horses (and us!) are getting some great advice and training in. We are learning tons and advancing our long lining and training skills greatly. We can’t thank Ed enough for all his wonderful help!

Nature’s Edge Welcomes Simba

January 25 we welcomed a new team member to Nature’s Edge. Simba is a 9 year old registered red roan Gypsy Vanner that comes to us from LexLin Gypsy Ranch in Tennessee.  He’s very willing and eager to please whoever is working with him, loves to be scratched, and loves being around people in general. When entering the pasture Simba is one of the first ones to greet you. We are excited to have Simba join the Nature’s Edge family!
