An Organization Close to our Heart

Although much of our focus is here on our farm there are several organizations in which we’re involved and one in particular that is close to our hearts.  Health in Harmony was started by a friend of ours, Kinari Webb, to affect positive change on Borneo.  Kinari is a doctor and Health in Harmony works to provide medical care to the villages that surround Gunung Palung National Park on Borneo while at the same time working on protective measures for the rainforest contained within the park.  Since it’s inception in 2007 the clinic established by Health in Harmony has seen over 18,000 patients.  Health care is affordably priced and can be paid for in a number of ways in addition to cash.  These include woven mats, animal manure for the organic garden or helping at the clinic, plant nursery or organic garden.  Villages who stop illegal logging have additional resources available to them like organic farm training and mosquito nets.  It’s an amazing effort and we invite anyone reading this post to check out the website:  www.healthinharmony.org.  The next step is building a hospital and fundraising is getting under way.  It’s a great way to feel like you’re positively affecting the planet and the people who live on Borneo.
