Benevolence Farm: A Social Entrepreneurship Panel

Join us to hear staff and residents of Benevolence Farm talk about their work and how they use social entrepreneurship to advance their mission!

Benevolence Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that supports women returning after incarceration by providing housing, employment, and case management services. Benevolence Farm embodies social innovation through its working farm model which provides employment, stability, and growth opportunities for residents, who grow and sell produce.

This year, Benevolence Farm has expanded its social entrepreneurship by adding a bodycare product line. Residents create and sell a wide array of handmade, high quality body care products – soaps, lotions, body butters, face masks, scrubs, lip balms, etc. – featuring farm-grown healing herbs such as tulsi, lemon balm, chamomile, hibiscus, and more.
