You can grow your own food. We can help.

Place of HOPE Garden

Unfortunately it was the middle of winter when this grant came to our attention, so our picture shows a snow covered garden.  However, our non-profit runs two discipleship houses, one for men and one for women and children, and a grade school.  It is our hope to use the money to redo an existing garden at our men’s home and start new gardens at both the women’s home and the school.  The gardens would be used for a two-fold purpose; one to educate the men, women and students on how to grow their own food and secondly it will provide food for the families and with any excess to the neighborhood surrounding us.  It is also our desire to educate the children on the growth process by examining the plants in their different stages of development.
