Nepa’s Summer in the City Public Fundraiser- $42- 3 Hour Event

July 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$42.00

This event is being hosted by NEPA’s Summer in the City, a local youth organization, to fundraise for Hillside Farms’ Care Farming Services (often referred to as their youth Grief Camp) and provide a fully-funded week of “farm therapy “ to disadvantaged children facing trauma in NEPA.

Hillside Farms’ Care Farming Services provides a compassionate and healing space for children facing the difficult challenges of trauma. Since 2013, it has been a beacon of hope to the region’s children from ages 6 to 14, especially those dealing with various forms of trauma, including the painful loss of loved ones due to various circumstances, including overdose, homicide, or suicide.

According to extensive research, damaging experiences may involve violence, abuse, or growing up in a household affected by mental health issues or substance dependencies. Trauma is not a fleeting affliction but leaves lasting effects on a child’s brain development and coping mechanisms. However, recovery is indeed possible, and the nationally-recognized Care Farming Services at Hillside Farms offer a structured yet compassionate route towards healing. This comprehensive, evidence-based program offers children the opportunity to interact with mental health professionals, trauma counselors, and occupational therapists.

Children also engage in age-appropriate farm-based educational activities, creating a bond of shared experience and understanding with likewise affected peers. Moreover, each day includes grief education sessions and emotional support activities tailored to the children’s individual needs, while respecting their individual pace and comfort zones in group activities. Each week-long experience concludes with a symbolic closing ceremony at the Children’s Memory Garden, succeeded by a touching Butterfly release.

You may bring any food and drinks you would like. We supply the glasses, ice, cork screw and aprons. The event is from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Please arrive 30 minutes before to get your seats and get settled before the event starts. A check will be presented at the end of the event. Ages 18+. You must be 21 to consume alcohol.
