“This summer was the first year I came to volunteer here and I have to say, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Everyone at Nature’s Edge is so wonderful! They always let you know how grateful they are for everyone’s hard work. I am super glad I came to Nature’s Edge and I will definitely be coming back!”

“Love this place! In all the time I’ve spent here volunteering not a second went to waste. 🙂 I have also seen how much they help their patients. Truly amazing what they do here.”

“I have volunteered my time helping out with client group activities, photography, side walking,and grooming/exercising the animals! I have seen amazing treatment/activities given by the therapists to increase the self confidence and the progress of the clients abilities! The volunteers/staff are so welcoming and friendly. The scenery, nature, and farm animals are so calming and soothing! I usually come to volunteer 1-2 times a week! Volunteering here has helped my self confidence, mood and exercise in many abundant ways! I really love coming to this amazingly awesome, Nature’s Edge Therapy center!”

“I had a good time and I helped with the horses. I got to eat lunch with the Reminiscing on the Farm group. Gymir is my favorite horse!”

“I had a great time at Nature’s Edge. I hope to come again. It was fun grooming the horses and to meet new people. I made some new friends. I hope next time I come it will be as fun as today!”
