Exploring with Grace

Mission

The Exploring with Grace Fund offers opportunities for youth in under-resourced areas to visit Greenacres Foundation where educators foster connections with the environment, generative agriculture, and the arts. By providing assistance for groups to attend programming, the fund honors the memory of Grace Lewis, ensuring that her passion for exploring Greenacres lives on with each generation.

Vision

The Exploring with Grace Fund envisions Greenacres Foundation as a place that empowers individuals to connect with nature and each other. These types of hands-on experiences have been known to provide benefits to physical, mental, and emotional health. We envision opportunities for exploring the natural world through an environmental, agricultural, and artistic lens, while collectively learning how to be stewards of the Earth. We aspire for the Exploring with Grace Fund to provide wider accessibility for learners by offering opportunities free of charge outside of typical school hours.

“Wait for me!”... It's hard to keep up when you're the short one of the group. 😅

Our flerd (flock and herd) keeps growing and this combination of species is making our pastures thrive. Not only do they keep each other company, but our pastures are more evenly evenly grazed because of their different grazing preferences of plant types!
