Rustic Roots Sanctuary Energy Guidelines

At Rustic Roots Sanctuary we ask that all visitors enter the space with the energy of gratitude for the land and those who are working to maintain and uphold the values of Rustic Root Sanctuary on the land.

We ask that while at markets or events hosted at Rustic Roots Sanctuary that empathy, compassion and patience is shown to all our vendors and volunteers. 

Though some may be used to seeing farms and or owning land, we ask that you acknowledge and honor the fact that many people of color who visit Rustic Roots Sanctuary are experiencing a farm for the very first time. 

Our goal is to make sure that each visit to the farm is a healing and holistic experience for all our visitors! So please be conscious of your kindness when you choose to visit our farm.
