Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

There is no such a thing as "a licensed therapeutic community". This needs to be changed so we don't raise false hopes for people who are vulnerable and desperate for assistance.

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

My 20 year old autistic son and I live in Oregon. I don't want to place him in a group home however, I am exhausted and frustrated from the lack of resources. I would like to start up a rural care facility. Any ideas on how to begin this feat?

Re: “Sugar Mountain Farm Adds On-Site Butchering

Agree with the first comment. There are some wonderful photos of inside the butcher shop on their blog. Check it out, it's one of the prettiest little meat processing facilities I've ever seen! And if you have the time, read about the entire project on the's very impressive what this family of five has accomplished. And by the way, if you haven't tasted their pork you're missing out! It's that good:)

I wish you had pictures of the interior instead of the old falling down farmhouse that nobody lives in!

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

I was born and brought up in Vt. I think it is a great measure to help any community or person who puts it to use. Lets stop critizing the people who help and maybe pitch in a bit yourself. We need to get back to basics.

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

This and similar Camophill communities are excellent for people with developmental disabilities. Now we need similar programs for those with serious mental illness, to help them live in community and give them a way to use their abilities and strengths successfully, while coping with the very difficult problems their illness causes.

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

I wish Seven Days would stop this "revitalize" Hardwick selling point that is continually repeated for nearly the last 10 years. This newspaper takes away all the years of hardwork and community organizing that the French, Anglo, and Native American descendants having been doing over the years. Hardwick has always been accommodating of newcomers and doesn't need to be patronized as some backward hick town saved by some college educated city folks. The folks that helped found the Buffalo Mountain Coop, the People's Barn down the road, worked as artists and other educators in the schools, town office, and business and farming community were welcomed and helped be part of the community in the 1960's and 1970's. The reason why people move into the area and bring great programs for people like Heartbeet, is what the community welcomes. If you never visited or lived in the Hardwick area and only read about it through Seven Days, you would think how limited the locals must be in taking care of themselves.

Re: “At Heartbeet Farm, Adults With Disabilities Bloom

I'm so pleased to learn about this model. It shares some qualities with L'Arche, an impressive residential program started in France where adults with and without development disabilities live together.

I know a number of people who want new kinds of intentional communities for different needs and stages of life. Thanks for the inspiration.
