|About||Renewing Lives and Cultivating Relationships|
|Mission||Abundance Acres is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) that bears witness to the abundant love of Christ by creating a setting for individuals, families and the community to pause, reflect and refocus their thinking; renewing lives and cultivating relationships between God, creation and each other.|
Abundance Acres is both a physical farm and a developing spiritual ministry. It is located at 89 Little Pond Road in Andover, VT on approximately 24 acres of land. The land was formerly part of a sheep farm many years ago, with several large “pens” surrounded by stone walls. Some of these pens have been cleared of the trees that grew up since that time with plans to cultivate vegetables, fruit, raise animals on the land, as well as to nurture minds and people who come to the farm. Goals and hopes for Abundance Acres include the following:
1. operate an environmentally and financially sustainable farm that grows nutritious food that is provided to community members through a share arrangement, especially considering families facing food scarcity.
2. create a center for:
a. education and practical life skills training particularly for families and youth
b. individuals and families to explore and cultivate a Christian perspective and understanding of resource stewardship and ways of living with: the land, others and God.
3. develop Bible-based renewal, restoration and relationship-oriented retreats and counseling
4. develop programs and events that invite neighbors and visitors to engage in community building and spiritual fellowship
