Rockford, Michigan
May 31, 2020 – August 15, 2020

Plainsong Farm is located in Rockford, Michigan, with a mission of restoring lost
connections between people, places and God. The Young Adult Fellowship residential
program is designed for young adults aged 25 to 31 who are seeking to explore the
intersection of regenerative agriculture, Christian spirituality, justice and their personal
vocations.
The farm itself is a 12-acre, historic, small-scale organic practice farm just outside
Grand Rapids in West Michigan, on the ancestral lands of the Anishinabe people. The
Fellowship program combines field work, reading, discussion, and independent,
self-directed projects that support Plainsong Farm’s mission. It is both immersive and
experiential, with the goal of equipping Fellows to become future leaders in the
re-integration of Christianity and the care of Creation.
Over an 11-week session, Plainsong Fellows will experience:
● A balanced life of prayer, study and work rooted in Benedictine spirituality
● Immersion in regenerative agriculture and contemplative practice for health and
healing
● Contextual analysis of power, possession, people, and place, both in history and
today
● Life in community with one another and the various communities of Plainsong
Farm
● Mentoring in clarifying, goal setting, and completing a personal project
Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Plainsong Fellowship cohort.
