Due to increasing requests to share the model of Magdalene/Thistle Farms with individuals and organizations interested in the work, we have developed a monthly Education Workshop.
2014 Education Workshop Schedule (Click below to register):
Participants will spend the morning at Thistle Farms where they will join the meditation circle, observe the manufacturing process and then learn more about the enterprise from the staff and the women in the program.
In the afternoon, we will take you to the primary residence, the Lena House, where the program team works. While at Lena, you will be able to learn more about the recovery process for the women.

Our Education Workshop Coordinator, Deb, will send you a confirmation email with more information.
If you have trouble completing the form, please contact Deb at email@example.com with your contact information. If you are not able to visit on one of the designated days, Deb will work with you to find a suitable time.
National Conference: 12-14 October 2014
"Roots: Digging deep into the causes and lifting up solutions"
OUR GOAL is to share inspiration and best practices for meeting the recovery needs of women who have survived trafficking, prostitution, addiction and homelessness and to launch a shared trade alliance among Thistle Farms and other social enterprises whose primary mission is moving women permanently out of poverty. In the past two years more than 1000 unique visitors from over 100 cities have visited Magdalene and Thistle Farms for our monthly education workshops. In response to the growing demand to learn about our model, we are thrilled to be hosting our second national conference.
Wednesday Meditation Circle
You are always welcome to visit on a Wednesday morning for the meditation circle at 9:00 am.
Due to the limited space of our facility, we recommend that you RSVP with the Wednesday you want to visit by filling out this form. It is not mandatory, but helps us ensure your experience at Thistle Farms is memorable and rewarding.
If you'd like to learn more about the program from the comfort of your home, we'd encourage you to read the book Find Your Way Home. Written collaboratively by the community, it includes 24 principles of healing that are the foundation of the organization. Order here.
