The land is a place to get close to nature and has a number of programs that are offered on-site.
The article mentions that seasons are very special at Sharon Prince Grace Farms. In the summer, nature is in full bloom and the land is especially beautiful. In the fall, the foliage is marked with beautiful and bright golds, oranges, and reds. During the winter the beautiful trees are filled with glistening caps of snow. During all of these seasons the walking trails are especially popular and showcase the natural beauty that Grace Farms has to offer.
Sharon Prince’s main goal when the land was acquired was to restore a healthy ecosystem. Prince wants to make sure that Grace Farms is restored to create a sustainable and nurturing environment for the wildlife that live there. This restoration of Grace Farms has brought back many indigenous wildlife that has since left. Grace Farms has over 80 species of birds that call the land home. The land is also home to beautiful butterflies, bees, and Kestral Falcons.
The article discusses the Community Garden at Grace Farms. The garden provides a chance for people to be educated in sustainable farming, while also giving those who participate a sense of community and a way to relieve stress. According to the article, Earth Day is a big annual event at Grace Farms. There are many family friendly festivities offered to everyone and this allows people the chance to really interact with and learn more about nature.
In an article with Gazetteday entitled “Vast Natural Offerings At Grace Farms”, Prince shared that the foundation aspired to preserve this site as a gift of open space, a peaceful respite for the community to enjoy and to encourage people to draw inspiration from nature, pursue justice, encounter the arts, explore faith, and above all, collaborate for the common good.
