Seeds of Solidarity Education Center is a non-profit organization based in Orange MA that innovates programs to awaken the power among people of all ages–from toddlers to teens to people who are incarcerated– to Grow Food Everywhere to transform hunger to health, and create resilient lives and communities. The organization is based on a solar-powered farm which uses agroecological methods to regenerate soil, restore climate, and build community food resilience. Seeds of Solidarity is a co-founder of the North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival, an event that ignites regional art, agriculture and economy while zero-waste- producing only two bags of trash for 10,000 people.
We created a really inspiring Resilience Postcard to have and share, that was included in our annual appeal mailing. Take a peek at the postcard and our letter to you. Anyone can make a tax-deductible, secure donation on-line anytime– and gifts of any amount are deeply valued and meaningful.
If you would like to receive The Resilience Postcard by mail to have and share, contact us.

Long abandoned, the site is now vibrant and healing with abundant no-till gardens, solar greenhouses glowing with healthy greens, and energy efficient and artistic buildings. We are located at 165 Chestnut Hill Road, Orange, MA where you will also find our seasonal farmstand stocked with fresh greens and produce.
