PR & Media

Media Guidelines
    • Please visit our PR Resources Page above for any of the following:
      • Articles, videos, and media kit featuring Becca Stevens and Thistle Farms.
      • Images and logos to use to promote a Thistle Farms or Becca Stevens event.
      • Archive of recent Thistle Farms newsletters.
    • For media interviews with Becca Stevens or visits to Thistle Farms, contact Marlei Olson at, PR/Development Director. 
    • Media visits can be arranged at Thistle Farms on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm (CST). On Wednesdays at 9:00am, we have an A.A.-style meditation that is open to the community. You are welcome to participate with advance notice.
    • Photography requests will need advance approval. 
    • As Thistle Farms is a place of business, and due to the number of requests we receive, it is not always possible to set up individual interviews with women. When interviews are granted, we request the focus is on their work at Thistle Farms and their future. Please refrain from asking details about the trauma they experienced growing up or on the streets.
    • We are only able to accommodate a limited number of video requests and it will depend on our current schedule and how far in advance the request was made.
    • Please use first names only in articles. 
    • For interviews we recommend open-ended questions that concentrate on a woman’s experience with Thistle Farms or her future. Suggestions are:
      • Tell us about your work at Thistle Farms.
      • What does healing look like for you?
      • How does recovery impact your family and friends?
      • What has been the best and the hardest lessons in recovery?
      • What do you enjoy most about your life now?
