Visiting & Volunteering

Thistle Farms offers a number of unique ways to experience being a part of our movement for women’s freedom.


Wednesday Morning Meditation

Every Wednesday at 9 AM, our morning meditation is open to the public. This is a time for staff, volunteers, and newcomers to our community to gather and read reflections written by graduates of the program and share reflections on the stories. Please join us in the circle!


Wednesdays at 8 AM, we offer a free tour of our campus. Get a first-hand look at our work and see our mission in action. Note that this will be a walking tour. You must be 16 or older to sign up.


Volunteer Opportunities

Want to get more hands on with Thistle Farms? Spend a few hours supporting the Thistle Farms team in one of our many departments! You can volunteer on your own or as a group (maximum of 8 people). All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. For all volunteer questions, please email
