Oasis tlc is creating a model that involves local, county and state government in the purchasing and leasing of property for farming. This supports town open space initiatives, and at the same times provides peaceful and healthy residences and meaningful work for adults with autism. Additionally, our farms provide the community with natural, wholesome foods for purchase and volunteer opportunities.Meaningful Work
People with autism are naturally in tune with the rhythm of nature and the seasons. Farming and agriculture are connected to the calendar as well. People with autism are concrete thinkers and farm work provides almost immediately tangible results. Partnering with non-disabled coworkers provides natural opportunities for therapeutic interventions. Peaceful and Healthy Residences
People with autism are over stimulated by the pace of society today. They also have special health needs. Farms and open space offer peace and stimulation from natural sources that are real and therapeutic for everyone involved. Using sustainable and environmentally responsible practices is healthy for everyone in every way. Interaction with Community
This idea provides a vehicle for volunteerism and education for the community as a whole. Oasis tlc is creating a model that involves local, county and state government in the purchasing and leasing of property for farming. This supports town open space initiatives, and at the same times provides peaceful and healthy residences and meaningful work for adults with autism. Additionally, our farms provide the community with natural, wholesome foods for purchase and volunteer opportunities. Farm centers will be set up as examples of “green” living which will be open to the public to observe. The establishment of local CSA’s (community supported agriculture) is something that anyone in the community can choose to participate in.
