Holistic Healthcare Available to All

Our mission is to facilitate collaborative holistic healthcare and education in our local community


Holistic Healthcare

We advocate healthcare that addresses body, mind, emotion and spirit, and that favors the least invasive modalities whenever possible.

Unconditional Love

The essential heart of health and healing is love; it is the foundation of trust and transparency in human interaction.


We are strongly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). All are welcome at our events. We support and cultivate diversity including age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, race, range of ability, religion, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.


The healer and the patient are equal partners in the healing process and their interaction is one of deep listening and mutual respect.


We all have the capacity to heal. Holistic healthcare empowers this capacity in both the healer and the patient.


Everyone is capable of being in touch with the field of all Knowledge. We seek to fulfill our highest potential and to inspire others to do the same.

Hello Holistic Health Community,

As some of you may have heard, the Holistic Health Community is in the process of acquiring Back Home Farm on Lucas Turnpike in High Falls, New York.  This farm will become our Home.  Here we will be anchoring our roots deep in the soil of this fertile land along the banks of the Rondout.

The original inhabitants of this land, who we acknowledge and remember, the Esopus Munsee, our ancestors, grew crops in these fields, fished and swam in the waters, had villages, communities and raised their children in this territory. They called the waters that flow along the boundary of this farm, Kahaksink, the place of wild geese.

Now the land stewardship is changing hands again to a new generation of care takers who hold this land as a legacy for the future generations. This farm will become the Home of the Holistic Health Community. In time we will build the Holistic Health Community Center on the land, constructed according to the principles of sacred geometry, harmonic resonance and natural building, demonstrating what is possible in the interaction of architectural structure with consciousness and healing.

As we begin to dream about putting roots deep down into this land, we are imagining what could grow, flower, bear fruit and flourish in this beautiful fertile landscape along the Rondout. What will flourish and grow within each of us as we put our feet on the ground, gather together and build a place of peaceful co-creation. A place where we tend the gardens both within ourselves and the gardens that will surround and nourish us.

When we build communities of plants and people in a Permaculture Design it is a symbiotic relationship of connection and support and direct feedback. It is bigger and healthier than any of the individual parts. it is a return to the blueprint of natural law and how nature designs, builds, adapts and creates.

This has been the dream and intention of the Holistic Health Community since we first began offering holistic health care to the community on the first day of Spring in March of 2012. Now 11 years later we are at the beginning of a whole new adventure with opportunities and possibilities to expand our programming and settle into the cycle and rhythm of seasonal change, the ebb and flow of growth, expansion, fruition, then slowing down, rest and rejuvenation.

The Holistic Health Community from Soil to Soul is a broad sweep of connections and relationships. This will be a teaching farm where our mission of Holistic Health from Soil To Soul can be more fully expressed in the educational programs, hands on workshops, presentations and opportunities we will offer to the community.

This will be a regenerative, true organic farm with the land as a partner in all that we do. Regenerative farming is about building the soil quality while the land yields vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs. There is a direct relationship between the health of the soil and the land and the health of our bodies. As a holistic health community, we are deeply aware and committed to demonstrating and participating in these interconnections. We know that health and wellbeing begins at the microbial level in the soil and that food grown in vibrant alive soils then yields nutrient dense foods.

This is one of the foundational cornerstones of wellness and also of building a local thriving economy of exchange, sharing and reciprocity that is intertwined like the mycelium network beneath our feet. When we utilize regenerative true organic farming techniques, we are also following nature’s way of capturing carbon and returning it to the plant and soil life where it does its best work in supporting healthy plant growth.

This is a bold move for the Holistic Health Community and we are reaching out to our entire community and beyond to help support us in this mission and in helping to realize this vision.

Our immediate time line is to raise $750,000.00 by the beginning of April 2024.

All contributions and donations are most welcome, if you know of any philanthropic funders or foundations who would be aligned with this mission, please share their contact information so we can get in touch with them and open up a dialog.

Thank You All for being a part of our extended family.
Come along with us as we celebrate the beauty, diversity and abundance of this farm and what it may bring forth.
We are all in this together.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.

With Much Gratitude,

Larry Brown, Project Director for the Holistic Health Community
