About Grace Farms

Grace Farms Foundation's interdisciplinary humanitarian mission is to pursue peace through five initiatives ' nature, arts, justice, community, and faith ' and Grace Farms, a SANAA-designed site for convening people across sectors. Our stake in the ground is to end modern slavery and gender-based violence, and create more grace and peace in our local and global communities. As a part of this work, Grace Farms recently launched Design for Freedom, a new movement to eradicate forced labor in the building materials supply chain.

The Foundation carries out its work through the publicly available facilities and integrated programs of Grace Farms, an 80-acre property owned and operated by the Foundation. Grace Farms was established as an essential platform for the Foundation, serving as a welcoming place where individuals, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities come together to collaborate for the common good.
