Since 1986, Mount Grace has protected over 35,000 acres across North Central and Western Mass. Thousands of those acres have been protected in Winchendon, such as Murdock Farm & Dairy Bar, Fern Glenn Conservation Area, and most recently Sunset View Farm – Mount Grace’s 4th Whole Farm Forever. Help us celebrate these conservation projects as well as upcoming plans to add a trail at Whitney Memorial Forest on Benjamin Hill.
Though we have been working on climate and land justice already, we are excited to announce the increased capacity of our Climate and Land Justice program! We acknowledge the shared histories of Indigenous and Colonialists, in particular the harmful history of land theft, and are hopeful that by coming together we can find a way to move forward through our shared love of the land and make land amends. To highlight this history and path forward, Fred Freeman of the Nipmuk Cultural Preservation, Inc. will give a special keynote speech and Andre StrongBearHeart Gaines Jr. of the Nipmuc Nation with youth will perform a meaningful traditional dance that honors the land and our relationships.
