The most remarkable part of the Triple Care Farm journey is the gift young people receive as they regain their sense of self and purpose in life. Where there is purpose, there is hope, and where there is hope, there is life. 

The farm that saved me

Here’s a recent heartfelt letter from a student, Peter, giving thanks to Triple Care Farm for the gift of saving his life. 

Dear Review Committee, 

I’m coming before you to present you with my final review letter.

After Triple Care Farm I will be off to enter the big world again. I have been swimming in a kiddies pool for 3 months, now to be put back in the great big ocean. 

I am so thankful for the helping hand the workers have given me and the many hours hard work they have given me. 

I will be moving back to my mother’s house, this is where I belong. 

My time here at Triple Care Farm has come to end so soon, the weeks have just flown by.

I remember complaining to my partner in my first couple weeks, saying there is no way I would ever be able to do it. 

Look where I am now.

I feel like I have accomplished so much since entering the farm, as the little lost kid looking to find who he was a person.

With the help of staff, other students and myself, I have finally found out what it means to be Peter. 

I will always remember the farm and the view will always be burned into my memory.

 This is the farm that saved me. 

I owe so much to this place. Without coming here, my life was destined to be cut short. 

I never would have got the chance to read this letter to the committee, or even meet the amazing people I have. 

My plans on leaving the farm are to look for part-time forklift work, or any job to get myself back on my feet.

I also plan to save to travel the world and move into my own little place with my partner next year.

I will soon be studying a bachelor’s degree in Communications.

I am very confident to be graduating from the program, and I am so positive that my life is only forwards from this point onwards. 

I cannot wait to be at the farm one last time, with the staff and all my loved ones and close friends, to celebrate graduation.

I hate to say this, but other than that day, I hope to never see you again, but if I do, I’m sure it will be on good terms. 

Thank you for having me stay here, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. 

Yours Sincerely,
