For Young Adults

Year of Service & Learning

Plainsong Farm is a living laboratory where young adults can experiment with how to pray, belong, grow, rest, and play. Plainsong’s fellows grow food for local pantries, help out with farm camp, host volunteers, care for the land, and share stories from the farm. The Young Adult Fellowship program is designed for young adults, aged 21 to 32. The fellowship offers immersive experiences and education in small-scale regenerative agriculture, spiritual practice, and communal living.  

Plainsong Fellows will experience:
-a balanced life of ​prayer, feasts, play, rest, study, conversation, retreats, and work
-immersion in regenerative agriculture and contemplative practice for health and healing of all creation
-contextual analysis of power, possession, people, and place, both in history and today
-life in community with one another and the various intergenerational communities of Plainsong Farm
-the joys and opportunities for conflict transformation that comes with living in community
-embodied practice.

All of the fellows help out with farm chores and farm events.  And each fellow is tasked with a particular position on the farm.  Accepted Fellows and Plainsong’s Leadership will discern an appropriate position for each fellow to serve, at Plainsong Farm, throughout their fellowship year.
