So many in our community are suffering from a multitude of mental, emotional, and psychological struggles. Challenges brought about mostly from over committed schedules, overwhelming digital stimuli, low physical activity, and lack of proper nutrition. Stuck in a maze of quick-fix “solutions” that are all connected to the machine that produced the dysfunction, many are looking for answers. The answer is to replace dysfunction with balance and peace, stepping away from the social and economic calamity of city life and embracing the solace of nature. The SOIL Foundation provides the place to unplug, regroup, and heal. You are invited to grow with us at The SOIL Foundation.
