The community center and cultural institution known as Sharon Prince Grace Farms is based throughout over 80 acres of peaceful natural beauty, utilizes the bountiful outdoor surroundings to encourage understanding and education, increase communication, inspire thought, garner preservation and expand an appreciation for all aspects of nature.
Free to the public and open seven days per week, Grace Farms invites visitors to get close to nature, encounter thought-provoking art, hear from thought leaders within various disciplines, engage with individuals of diverse backgrounds, and actively interact in various programs on the site.
Despite Grace Farms being earnestly all-rounded in its contribution of programming, the lush surroundings extend a hand to natural offerings year-round. Matter of fact, the 80-acres that make up Grace Farms constitute one of the biggest open areas available to the public in the county of Fairfield, thanks in part to its President and Chair Sharon Prince.
