Sustaining Farms and Families
We teach farming methods that focus on organic, sustainable agriculture and have been developed in Africa through Foundations for Farming. We help families start vegetable kitchen gardens, demonstrate making compost, and encourage a diligence in farming that can create a profit. Everything we do must be done, on time, at a high standard, without wastage and with joy. With these principles, small holder farmers can enjoy the bounty of the earth.
We believe that rural farmers in villages throughout the world can have an abundant life by learning to properly tend and keep the land. We work to teach them best practices for farming.
98% of them live in the developing world, 75% of them live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Asia and Africa, and 70% of them rely on farming as their occupation. Even during hard times, God encouraged His people to "build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit." Jeremiah 29:5Even during hard times, God encouraged His people to "build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit." Jeremiah 29:5
At least 156 million children worldwide are stunted, with lifelong negative health and income implications. Under nutrition contributes to more than one-third of all deaths. Through teaching family farming we seek to fight stunting in children throughout the world.
