On Saturday, October 9th, members of Hamilton High School's Drama Club completed their fall service project at H.O.P.E.Full Pastures. H.O.P.E.Full Pastures is an animal therapy farm that serves foster children and families who have experienced trauma. In addition to their animal therapy, children receive counseling, educational curriculum, music therapy, and other services to help them heal.
Drama Club students and their Director, Sam Haven, helped prep a fence to build two new animal pastures, cleaned the water trough for the horse and alpaca pen, mucked out and relined the goat pen, brought in feed bags from the delivery truck into the feed room, and helped clean out the large storage barn, which will later be converted to a social loft for teens and sensory gym for children that the farm serves.
Director Sam Haven said of their experience, "The students really enjoyed the work they did on the farm, as well as the time they got to spend with the animals while they worked. The owners and volunteers of H.O.P.E.Full Pastures were so lovely and welcoming! It was a wonderful experience for our students. We look forward to a long relationship with H.O.P.E.Full Pastures and its staff!"
