July Volunteer of the Month: Brooke Ferrell
Brooke is an incredible asset to Heartland Farm Sanctuary. As our volunteer land management supervisor, Brooke is usually the first one at the barn in the mornings and sometimes the last one to leave! She takes the lead on all land management projects – and since Heartland is home to over 80 acres – she keeps very busy! We cannot thank you enough, Brooke, for your dedication to the Heartland barn, people, and animals. Read more…
Thank you, NGL!
National Guardian Life is Heartland’s second stall sponsor. “NGL chooses to support Heartland Farm Sanctuary because of the unique work they are doing with helping people of all ages, including family groups, work through difficult and traumatic life events,” said Elizabeth Barden, NGL’s Corporate Giving Administrator. “They do this work with the farm animals they rescue from dire situations. The wellness process is a circle of humans helping animals and animals connecting with and helping humans.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! We are so thankful for their support.
