It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of a dear friend and Wild Earth Board Member, Mike N. Durschmid. Mike has been an inspiration to generations of activists working for a compassionate and just world for people, plants and animals. We are honoring Mike's passing by establishing an organic memorial garden and off-grid solar array on the microsanctuary grounds at Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary.

Mike deserves to be honored in a way he would have loved, in a place he did love and hoped to live at one day, and in a manner which will continue to inspire generations towards compassion, resiliency, and sustainability. Please honor Mike and support the creation of Mike's Memorial Garden here.


Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary is an organic permaculture project and a 501(c)3 nonprofit farmed animal sanctuary focusing on education, outreach, and collaboration.  Nestled on 200 acres in the foothills of Appalachia in Eastern Kentucky, Wild Earth envisions a new food system where plants, animals, and people thrive within the natural world through a sustainable system of mutual aid. The farm is a combination of rolling hills, creeks, ponds, cliffs, caves, fields, and forests where many species of wild and domesticated plants and animals make their home. We offer a variety of internships, classes, tours, volunteering, and other opportunities to participate, teach, share, and learn!
