About Us

TerraCorps began in 2008 as a local pilot program of Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust (Mount Grace) with four Commonwealth Corps members serving in our region. Since those early days, Mount Grace successfully scaled TerraCorps to support 20 service site partners across Massachusetts with 36 AmeriCorps members annually. The dramatic growth of TerraCorps has been fueled by the continuing need for increased organizational capacity in our sector, the trend of pursuing our work using a broader, more inclusive community-based approach, and the necessity of developing the next generation of skilled practitioners who will build on the legacies of our work. Mount Grace is proud that we could support 31 service site partners and 175 members and alumni over the years.
