Who We Are

Ecological Ministry

Young People at the Web of Life

Shepherd’s Corner, founded in 1992, is an ecological ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. This 160-acre natural oasis serves as a farm and center for ecology, spirituality, and education. The property’s diverse range of habitats offers a haven for wildlife and native flora, plus a place of peace, natural beauty, and spiritual refreshment. Our strategic plan focuses on three areas: environmental education, reflection on care of creation, and providing healthy, naturally grown produce.

At Shepherd’s Corner, you’ll find chemical-free naturally grown gardens, chickens, sheep, a llama, a turf labyrinth, greenhouses, and meditation trails. Shepherd’s Corner welcomes many volunteers and hosts public programs as well as programs for adults or student groups. A non-profit organization, Shepherd’s Corner is always in need of donations.

Please note that Shepherd’s Corner is private property and is not a public park. If you wish to use the trails or other facilities, please call to make arrangements.

Our Vision

Shepherd’s Corner Farm and Ecology Center is a small corner of creation seeking to recreate the lands’ wholeness by rediscovering the life-giving harmony between the people and the land. Here, people of all backgrounds can learn to reconnect with the natural environment, themselves, one another, and the Creator who made them all.
