Your Donations At Work

Thanks to the funds provided by several of our generous donors and grant funding organizations over the years, many wonderful facilities improvements have been accomplished….

2019 Donations and Grants Made Possible: 


Thanks to The Macon County Beekeepers Club Rachel Kinback, Madison Wright and the donors of the food forest project for their contributions to enable The Many Hands Peace Farm to keep bees for their first year. We have three hives that aim to enhance our pollination efforts and provide homes for happy bees next to our Mountain Meadow.
