Thistle Farms Creates Bath Products and Opportunity for Women Rebuilding Lives

Thistle Farms in Nashville, Tennessee, is a faith venture run by the Magdalene Community that produces a popular line of natural bath and body products sold at over 140 stores throughout the country.

This exemplary social enterprise employs and trains 32 Magdalene residents rebuilding lives from addiction, domestic violence, or prostitution in a 11,000 square foot production facility.

Other faith ventures can learn much from this organization's philosophy, passion, and 24 Spiritual Principles. It also offers one of the country's best faith-based career and life-skill training programs.

The organization was recently profiled on NPR's Talk of the Nation found here.
