An article from Vice transverses the beauty and purpose of the Grace Farms Foundation place in Connecticut. The article describes the grand architecture designed by a Japanese company spanning over 80 acres of space to work with. With the facilities located in the quiet town of New Canaan, the article points to how it arrived there 3 years ago to the public.
Sharon Prince, who is the president of Grace Farms Foundation speaks about how they narrowed it down to this Japanese company, who both thought the partnership was a match made in heaven. There is a lot of freedom for people who visit Grace Farms, and Sharon Prince shares that was what it was set out to be; a safe space for people to collaborate and meet up for work or to just be one with nature. Sharon Prince and the team gave the partner free rein to make the buildings special and with their own viewpoints in mind.
The Grace Farms Foundation was assembled to be able to be open all year-round and survive any inclement or severe weather. Sharon Prince is credited in the article stating that many people but also organizations have visited Grace Farms to have some open discussions and hold important lectures on some modern day issues. Some efforts that Grace Farms are fighting against includes big problems such as human trafficking and slavery. Grace Farms is located in New Canaan, Connecticut and open Tuesday to Sunday.
