Sunshine Acres

Some of Sunshine’s community members walk on four legs; others hop or gallop at a graceful pace. And all offer this: a gently-relaxing escape from the chaos of everyday routine.

Check out our equine assisted activities (EAA) and therapeutic riding options with certified riding instructors. You’ll find lots of volunteer opportunities here in the barn as well.

Next door, our crews are tending crops of flowers and vegetables and herbs in the summer and they’re working on construction and other projects during the cold months to get us ready for spring. In 2015, they not only offered produce for staff and family at Sunshine Communities, the greenhouse crew provided 104 pounds of basil to Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse for delicious, shelf-stable basil.

Together, the barn and greenhouse make up what’s informally known as Sunshine Acres. For more information about Sunshine’s barn and greenhouse operations, its camps and its services, contact Laurie Kimura at lkimura@sunshine.org or call 419-779-0756.
