Big things in store for the Homestead in 2016

Dear friends,

Thank you for your support and encouragement during our annual fundraiser! Here’s what some of you had to say about why YOU endorse the Homestead:

“The Holistic Homestead is a true blessing from above.  Arwen , the Goddess behind the Homestead is just that , a Goddess.  She is very knowledgeable about the Rocky Mountains’ medicine.    She is a healer and  she shares her natural medicinal products with us , teaching and guiding us towards Health and Happiness.  May The Holistic Homestead be blessed with abundance and in turn bless us with the  knowledge of herbs and healing.” – Brenda Campbell, Reiki master, Vibration therapy, Ayurvedic practitioner

“I am so very grateful to have met you this year. I am certain we will collaborate in a lot of inspiring and beneficial ways in the coming future. I have a feeling we will meet soon to envision our respective contributions of herbal health and wisdom to the community.” – Kate Hormel, Certified Herbalist, Certified Permaculture Design Instructor, herbalist and entrepreneur at Dynamic Roots and Alpine Botanicals

She not only helps with herbal support, but also helps with filling your soul with wonderful love and friendship!! Please, if you can… support her in her endevor. She is a huge part of what makes this community so special!!” – Angel O’Grady, founder and principle chef for Mountain High Pharms, author of Mountain High Pharms: Hemp and Cannabis Cooking

Thanks to everyone who has donated to bring us up to $300!

You are in good company with The Holistic Homestead, and we are truly feeling blessed. During the month of December, we were able to raise $300 which gave us the ability to:

  • obtain “Charitable Solicitations” approval
  • incorporate as a Colorado nonprofit corporation
  • register The Holistic Homestead as our trade name
  • trademark our groovy logo (I’m quite proud of my hand drawn rooftop with chimney, tree and door logo)

The next step will be to become a federally recognized 501 (c) (3) at which point all your contributions will be tax deductible! In the meantime, we will continue to serve the peak to peak region in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and our extended online family with regular articles about health literacy, preventative medicine, building healthy communities, and advocating for greater access to holistic options.

Feel like you missed the party? You can always donate to the Homestead by clicking here, or support us by subscribing to our newsletter for only $12/year (print version and PDF), or by ordering some tasty, healthy snacks for you and your family on, choosing The Holistic Homestead at checkout!

Blessings for a healthy and happy 2016! -Arwen
