Continuing Sandy’s Vision

The Board, staff and volunteers were all greatly saddened by the passing of Alexander (Sandy) J. Mitchell. However, as we move forward we will never forget Sandy’s vision or the passion and determination he poured into the Farm, first to turn his dream into reality, and then to build and sustain the life-enriching programs the Farm offers to individuals of all abilities. In the days, months, and years to come, we will continue to keep Sandy’s vision front and centre and continue to provide the programs and services to our participants that have make WindReach Farm a truly unique and special place. We thank all of you for your continued patronage, financial and volunteer support of the Farm.

Sincerely,
Jon Bowles
Chair, Board of Directors

We offer learning and experiential opportunities with the goal of engaging with our clients in order to strengthen skills, independence, and physical well-being in a safe and nurturing environment.

We offer five core programs:
