Dozens of incredible volunteers joined us at the farm two years ago to plant each of the 1,500 blueberry and 500 blackberry plants in the dirt by hand. Last year, dozens more worked alongside one another pulling weeds, working the soil, and pruning the plants.
Together, we've logged hours upon hours of back-breaking, dirt-under-the-fingernails, fulfilling, joy-filled work - all in preparation for this JUNE. This very first harvest.
And the reason WHY?
We want to feed our children delicious, fresh foods with no chemicals added. We want to know where our food comes from and we want to be a part of the food-to-table movement in our little corner of the globe.
But that's not all, our heart's desire is to provide a way to do the same for children we have come to know and love halfway across the globe. Our little farm will pave a way for orphaned children in Zimbabwe to have even more hope for their future. Not only will we partner with our awesome friends at Help One Now to create a vocational study program on newly leased farm land near Musha WeVana children's home, but our community here will allow these children to flourish as they learn to grow and nourish their own sustainable food sources.
This little farm of ours is a special place, with soil prayed over and tended to by so many dedicated hands. We are absolutely honored to share it with you and your families.
