The Folensbee Estate enabled the creation of the Landfall Trust by making the 11-acre Landfall preserve and its Kent Cottage available exclusively to the Trust to oversee and to provide educational programs supporting the arts and cultural heritage activities.

The Landfall Trust's initial funding from the Estate provided two-year capital and five-year operating grant awards enabled the use of Kent Cottage for the Artist and Writer-in-Residence programs. 

The Partnership between the Trust and Estate also created the Landfall Legacy Endowment dedicated to conservering Landfall and Kent Cottage..  

In May of 2012, the Estate transferred title of Landfall to the Trust.

Listen to an audio recording, about Jake, the Folensbee Estate and the Landfall Trust with Trust board member Robert Frampton, a former student and friend, Remembering Jake.

The Estate is truly appreciative of the Trust Board, Advisory Committee and numerous volunteers for their dedication towards creating a sustainable Landfall Trust supporting arts and cultural heritage programs, and the conservation of Kent Cottage, into the distant future. The pristine 11-acre Landfall perserve and its historic Kent Cottage is truly a provincial and national treasure.
