Why We Started the Farm
In 2008 our owner, Joseph Chammas, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He went through some conventional treatments, but decided to stop them early, as the treatments were devastating to his body and spirit. He then transformed his life overnight as he and his wife, Tawna, went raw vegan for 3 years, and within that time started growing their own organic food.
Joseph and Tawna started with a few raised beds, and within a year or two their whole front and back yard was being used to grow organic foods. They converted a room in their house to grow wheatgrass and sprouts, which were used as medicine. Joseph and Tawna chose to leave their old lives behind and started a new life designing it how they wanted. This was the beginning of their journey to create the organic farm. At Gratitude Garden, we are truly passionate about medicinal herbs and plants that help us daily. Your true passion and purpose in life usually stem from the pain you have endured in your life.
Everyone will be dealt crappy cards at some point in their life, it is how you play those cards that truly matters.
