Restoring connections between people, places, and God through regenerative agricultural practices, farm-based education and national leadership initiatives.
Plainsong Farm & Ministry is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to cultivating connections between people, places and God by creating a place that nurtures belonging and the radical renewal of God’s world. Affiliated with the Episcopal Church, and open to all of every faith and none, Plainsong Farm is a living laboratory for ecological agriculture, farm-based education and discipleship, and food access and sovereignty in west Michigan. The farm is one hub in a growing national network reconnecting Christian discipleship and the care of creation through food and agriculture. A residential young adult service/learning program drawing applicants from around the country and strategic initiatives for wiser use of church-owned land extend our work beyond the farm itself. Founded in 2015 by self-funding volunteer partners and incorporated in 2019, Plainsong Farm now has a $300K annual budget, over 200 supporting members, a current donor retention rate of over 60%, and engaged volunteers and program participants making a difference both locally and nationally.
