Community Outreach Committee Project



For our spring community outreach event, the Wisconsin Dermatological Society (WDS) is partnering with Memory Farm Lane, Inc. in Marshfield, WISince 2017, Memory Lane Farm has enriched lives through a diverse range of farm-based initiatives tailored to individuals of all ages. Central to their mission is the Cultivating Hope Mentoring Program for children, teens, adults, and veterans. Their programs encompass nature and animal-assisted mentoring which provides vital support to those grappling with depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges.

Over 12-16 weeks, participants engage in conversations, chores, equine connections, and projects. Memory Farm Lane aims to foster personal growth and forge connections with nature, thereby empowering individuals to overcome challenges and thrive. Memory Lane's services have resulted in favorable outcomes, including bolstered intrapersonal skills, improved emotional well-being, and increased community engagement. At Memory Lane Farm, Inc., they are dedicated to creating a supportive environment where individuals can flourish and build a brighter future for themselves and their community.

The WDS Community Outreach Committee is raising funds via the donation link above to do the following:

  • Purchase Anti-Stress Kits for children and young adults who participate in the Cultivating Hope Mentoring Program.
  • Support a large rental space for Memory Farm Lane's equine connection events. 

Our goal is to raise $2,500! In addition, with the help of our attendees, we will be assembling kits at our social event following the Spring Meeting at SentryWorld in Marshfield on Saturday, April 20th.

Thank you in advance for your support!
