Owner of Lourensford Wine Estate, Jacob Wiese, welcomed the Healing Hub and all their guests to the farm, and said, “There are two ways to look at healing… The first is to retreat, to find refuge, to seek sanctuary. That is the closed way. Then there is another one, which is to open yourself up, to nurture, to take off and to invite in. We feel privileged to have joined forces with the families of the Healing Hub, which share the second vision of being open and engaged with the community. I feel proud to be a part of such a remarkable project.’’
