Grace Farms in New Canaan reopened today after a long hiatus and there is so much to celebrate!
Grace Farms closed in 2020 due to the pandemic but did not rest on its laurels. The nonprofit stayed true to its mission and became an essential place of business securing two million PPE for frontline healthcare workers as well as alleviating food insecurity for locals in need.
Today, the center for nature, arts, justice, community, and faith received a visit from Good Day New York who chose them as "Hero for the Day".
"We look forward to re-engaging with visitors, old and new, as we continue our work to advance good," Grace Farms wrote on social media.

According to a press release by Grace Farms, the reopening will feature the debut of Alyson Shotz’s commissioned site-specific sculpture, Temporal Shift, on view through September 2022. The sculpture is a part of the Art Initiative’s ongoing interdisciplinary study of time, led by Kenyon Victor Adams, Arts Initiative Creative Director and Pamela Ruggio, Arts Initiative Curator.
In addition, on Saturday, October 9, a new space for the public will open in the East Barn, including a gallery featuring rotating exhibitions. The inaugural installation, Common Good Through Crisis, considers the relationships and connections that inspired Grace Farms Foundation’s efforts to provide 2 million critical PPE to frontline health care workers, food relief to 125,000 people, and public programing to address the uncertainty caused by the pandemic for all.
