Twelve acres, two houses, historic barns, and many seeds for the future (including weed seeds and invasives, we’re not perfect) are located twenty minutes north of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our experiential programs for all ages take place right here, in the Rogue River sub-watershed of the Lower Grand River watershed.
As a living laboratory, our connections cross the country. We're growing a network of Christian outdoor farm, food and environmental educators; we educate leaders about wiser use of church-owned land. In a few short years Plainsong has made a difference both locally and nationally.
We're named for a tradition of sung prayer practiced by Benedictine communities who make vows to care for one place for a lifetime. We find that inspiring. As an organization affiliated with the Episcopal Church, it's also part of our heritage.
If you can, come to the farm! If you can’t, you can still be involved, wherever you are.
