Mary’s Farm and Sanctuary is a safe and tranquil setting for all people to learn, grow and heal.  With 30 acres of pristine pasture, gardens, and forest paths, the land is home to plentiful farm animals, wildlife and a few dedicated staff.  In the spirit of respecting and nourishing the web of life, fostering dynamic relationships between our animals, guests, and the land underlies all that we offer.

Programs on the farm include equine-facilitated wellness, natural horsemanship and nature-based counselling for children and adults with special needs, gifts and challenges.  We also partner with community agencies and health practitioners in the Greater Victoria region to host farm visits for their clientele.

Please contact us directly for more information about our services.

In order to provide more accessible and sustainable programming on Mary’s Farm and Sanctuary, the development of a non-profit arm, Mary’s Farm Society (MFS), is underway.  We have an excellent committed volunteer board of directors and staff and welcome you to share in our vision!  Consider donating to help launch MFS or be in touch to discuss ways you can be involved.  Thank you from all of the volunteers, interns and staff at Mary’s Farm & Sanctuary.

Thank you for your patience while we reconstruct our website.
