For Womankind 2016’s outreach mission, we are honored to partner with Thistle Farms, a sanctuary for healing for women survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking and prostitution. Thistle Farms is based in Nashville, Tennessee and was started by Episcopal priest and Womankind 2016 seminar leader Becca Stevens. The Thistle Farms community includes a residential program, a natural bath and body product line, a global marketplace, social enterprises, and even a cafe!
We are still developing our outreach mission with Thistle Farms so please check back to see what we have in store. In the meantime, please check out Thistle Farms’ website: http://thistlefarms.org. They have great finds for your holiday shopping list including scented candles, bath salts, stationery, ornaments, jewelry, and blankets. Don’t forget to follow the link to their global marketplace called Shared Trade!
Thistle Farms is a powerful community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction. Begun in 1977 as Magdalene by Becca Stevens, they employ more than 50 survivors through social enterprises which include a natural body care company, Thistle Stop Cafe, artisan studio, and global marketplace called Shared Trade. Thistle Farms includes a two-year residential program and advocacy services for up to 700 women yearly.
