Healing, Restoring and Repairing.
Tikkun Farm, a 3.5 acre farm in the neighborhood of Mt. Healthy in Cincinnati, intends to be a place of healing, restoration and repair cultivated through meaningful work and spiritual practices.
Tikkun is a Hebrew word meaning “repair” or “restore”. The phrase Tikkun Olam captures the collective life purpose of the Jewish people to “repair the world”. This phrase has many layers of meaning from personal healing to global reconciliation, but at it’s core it means to join with God in repairing what has been broken: lives, buildings, the land, relationships, villages and nations, bodies, etc. The work of repair also shows up in the bible in Isaiah 61 which begins with God’s promise to heal to God’s hurting people, but goes on to say that those healed will become healers… “repairers of the walls” and the “restorers of the devastations”.
Mary Laymon and Greg York bought the former dairy farm in 2010. They have been in the process of slowly repairing the buildings and inviting people to come and live in community on the Farm. The former Milk House is home to Deeper Roots coffee, a local artisanal coffee roaster. They also host retreats, workshops, community meals, and spiritual direction. They long for Tikkun Farm to offer many kinds of healing and repair. We hope a person who finds shelter at Tikkun Farm may come to know the truth that they are Beloved.
