Our Vision at
Sheltered by Grace

At Sheltered by Grace, we are excited to partner with the experts at Syntropic Solutions to develop our own syntropic farming.

This initiative involves creating a series of gardens throughout our site, each designed to produce a variety of edible plants such as fruits, berries, nuts, and vegetables.

Our syntropic garden isn't just about fresh food; it's about education, connection, and growth.

Our Vision

To create a thriving garden that nourishes both body and soul, offering our guests healthy food and a sense of purpose. Through this project, we’re building a self-sufficient and sustainable future for our clients.

Our Mission

Through syntropic gardening, we empower individuals to learn valuable skills, healing, connect with nature, and a supportive community. We welcome you to sponsor a project that directly impacts the lives of those experiencing homelessness in our community.

Join Our Syntropic Garden Initiative

At Sheltered by Grace, we don't just offer shelter – we offer a path to a brighter future. Our comprehensive support includes emergency accommodation, life-changing programs, and now, a brand new initiative: a syntropic garden – a garden that feeds, heals, and inspires. This is the vision we're bringing to life with our September project, and you can be a part of it. Our syntropic garden complements these efforts by offering a tranquil space for meditation, grounding, and reconnection with nature. It's about growth – both personal and environmental.

What is Syntropic Farming?

Imagine a garden where abundance flourishes, not just in the fruits and vegetables harvested, but in the lives we touch. This is the vision behind our Syntropic Garden, a groundbreaking initiative and a revolutionary approach to urban agriculture that nourishes both the body and the soul.

Syntropic farming is a revolutionary type of agroforestry that replicates the structure and function of natural forests. By creating productive and sustainable food systems, it essentially forms a "food forest" that thrives on principles of synergy, natural succession, and intelligent plant consortiums.

It's like growing food in a thriving forest, where everything works together seamlessly. Just like native trees, shrubs, and flowers support each other in the wild, syntropic farming brings together a diverse mix of compatible plants.

By mimicking nature's perfect balance, syntropic farming uses less water, reduces the need for pesticides, and promotes healthy soil – a gift for future generations.

The result? A bountiful harvest for our community, healthier soil for future generations, and a more sustainable future for our planet. But we can't do it alone. With your support, we can transform this vision into a reality.

Together, we can cultivate a thriving syntropic garden that serves as a guiding light for our clients, a testament to innovation and a model for a flourishing future.

Sowing Seeds of Hope

Empowering Through Education and Healing

This project is intricately linked to our Life Skills 101 Program, which aims to equip our clients with essential skills in growing and preparing their own food.

These activities not only promote self-sufficiency but also impart valuable knowledge about personal health and the medicinal properties of food.

Furthermore, our syntropic garden will serve as a serene environment for meditation, grounding, and reconnecting with nature.

It will complement our existing programs like Overcoming Trauma and Rehabilitation Recovery, offering a holistic approach to healing and personal growth.
