Genesis Farm is an ecological center with 226 acres of preserved farmland, located in Blairstown, New Jersey. A project of the Dominican Sisters of Caldwell, Genesis Farm was founded in 1980 by Miriam MacGillis, OP, who remains its Director. Genesis Farm is dedicated to understanding the Universe and Earth as a single, unfolding scientific process, one that offers profound insights into our public, private and spiritual lives.
Genesis Farm offers diverse and innovative experiences that inspire a comprehensive approach to personal and social change through its educational programs and its commitment to action. The project and facilities are open to all who are interested in exploring its sacred land, mission, and work.
Genesis Farm houses two guest residences, a library/media area, resource center, art studio and program offices. Founded in 1988 by Genesis Farm and the local community, the Community Supported Garden is one of the oldest Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in the country. It grew from half an acre to over 125 acres of farmland, and currently has more than three hundred members. For almost three decades, the farm has been working to eliminate inequities, injustices, and ecological devastation resulting from the present economic, political, and social systems by offering an alternative model of sustainable food production.
