Jonathan Gorham Sustainability Fund

Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, co-founders and co-directors of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University, established the Jonathan Gorham Sustainability Fund In recognition of Gorham’s more than 45-year effort to bring renewable energy and eco-friendly land use practices to fruition in the region. The designated fund will support Massaro Community Farm (MCF) and the initiatives in the community that MCF has undertaken. The Fund’s purpose is to increase the awareness and promotion of the use of renewable energy technologies, sustainable agricultural practices, local food production, sustainable living practices and the educational programs that explain their benefit. The fund will also support the restoration of abandoned farms in the region. The above photo is the restored Massaro barn with its solar PV array. Massaro Farm
