At Better Together Builders, we’ve made a commitment to give back and be active in doing what we can for the community. Our core philosophy in that we are all in this together, and together we make it better, is what drives us to do our best every single day.
We recently had the opportunity to take our design and build skills and put them to work by making a positive difference in the lives of a few of our favorite little (some big) friends over at Kindred Spirits Care Farm.
Kindred Spirits Care Farm is a wonderful organization in Los Angeles where the community comes together to reconnect — with the animals who live there, plants and trees within nature, themselves, and each other. The residents, including goats, chickens, alpacas, geese, pigs, rabbits, sheep and turkeys have been rescued and rehabilitated to live out the rest of their lives being free and happy. They offer animal therapy to kids, veterans, those recovering from physical illness, and anyone who wants to come and make a difference in their lives. They teach the importance of sustainability through care farming and practices to improve the air, soil and water that help nourish our bodies. They teach people about organic yard farming and urban agriculture so that we can take the direction of our futures in our own hands with the power of knowledge. This is a magical place where body, mind and spirit come together to thrive.
We jumped at the opportunity to help our friends and grabbed our tool belts and materials and got to work. Our mission was to make an impact on the quality of life for the turkeys and chickens living at the farm by modifying their housing shelters so that they can stay cool in the hot valley summers, where temperatures can often reach 100 degrees or more. We installed windows, added insulation, sealed all of the walls with radiant barrier, and added a brand new AC unit to create a comfortable living space for our friends.
The experience of being around these animals, their caregivers and the people who come to visit, volunteer and learn was gratifying and rewarding. You couldn’t help but feel good and elevated amongst nature and the connectivity. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Kindred Spirits Care Farm by giving our time and resources to help make beneficial changes for our friends at the farm.
