Purpose and Programs

Purpose

 Full Circle Alliance, Inc. (“The Alliance”) is a public benefit nonprofit corporation formed exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Our vision statement is: “Full Circle Alliance is dedicated to regenerating, strengthening, and healing the relationship between humans and nature (the land).” Our mission is to provide safe and welcoming access to the land allowing humans the opportunity to deliberately spend time in nature. When humans intentionally work to improve the soil, healing happens and souls are regenerated. 

Programs

The Alliance currently offers these programs:


Nature Healing Humans - The Alliance offers workshops and retreats in a variety of natural settings using a holistic, circular approach that incorporates intentional time in nature to facilitate human growth and development. This program is funded by donations and service fees paid by the client(s). 


Humans Healing the Land – The Alliance offers educational sessions and one-day or multi-day workshops for children, adolescents, adults, families and groups. Participants connect, learn and grow while intentionally working on the land to improve or repair water, soil, and mineral cycles. This program is funded by donations and service fees paid by the client(s). 


Community Outreach and Education – The Alliance offers community outreach days to the public for education about the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature through our seasonal open house/open gate program. This is an opportunity for the community to meet the staff (humans and horses), walk the land, observe projects and their progress, and to experience firsthand the power of the healing connection between humans and nature. The open house/open gate days are conducted at Badger Creek Ranch, Canon City, CO. There is no fee for attendees though donations are solicited. This program is funded entirely by donations. 


The Alliance plans to offer these programs in the coming years:


Regenerate Family – This program is a week-long group session for families. The intention for this program is to provide an opportunity for families with children with special needs to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect in a natural setting that is conducive to regenerating body and soul.  Regenerate programs are conducted at multiple sites, including Badger Creek Ranch, Canon City, CO. This program is funded by donations and service fees paid by the client(s).


Regenerate Veterans– This program is a week-long group session for veterans, or veterans and their families. The intention for this program is to provide an opportunity for veterans as a group or with their families to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect in a natural setting that is conducive to regenerating body and soul.  Regenerate programs are conducted at multiple sites, including Badger Creek Ranch, Canon City, CO. This program is funded by donations and service fees paid by the client(s).


Regenerate Agriculture – As our current generation of ranchers and farmers ages, there is a growing gap in the agricultural workforce. This program sponsors young agrarians in agricultural internships and apprenticeships through stipends and scholarships. This program is funded by donations.
