Our partners

Kinship Farm is grateful for our wonderful partners. We accomplish the majority of our work through mutually-beneficial collaboration with outside people and organizations. Many of our partners are at work in at least two out of three of our focus areas of spirituality, relationships, and the environment. We deeply respect and support our partners who maintain secular. At the same time, we simultaneously recognize the importance of creating opportunities for individuals to explore and express how spirituality influences and is fed by both secular and religious activities.*

If you or your organization would like to partner with us, we hope you'll visit our connect age and tell us about your interests, skills, and resources for cultivating ideas and projects that align with our mission and purpose.
