Forests play a central role in the well-being of our ecosystems. They sustain biodiversity, benefit our climate, and support human well-being. This Earth Day, join Grace Farms for a day of family-friendly activities celebrating the wonder of trees and encouraging us all to take part in forest conservation.

Forest Bathing

Reconnect with nature and engage your senses, feelings, and emotions. Erika Long of the Community Mindfulness Project will help participants to discover the power of nature’s ability to alleviate stress and anxiety and improve our focus, wellness, and mental health.

 

Tree Printing & Tree Communities | Find the Lines
