Project Details


  • Project Description:

    Chemical pesticides and additives are common in farming here, but there is little regulation to protect consumers when they buy locally farmed produce. Your partnership with the One Farm Training Center will fund the demonstration of natural farming techniques, including vermicomposting and stink-free animal pens. When farmers use chemical-free methods, they can sell their produce for higher profit, better providing for their families.

    Partner through your financial gift, or come work alongside the farmers and share about the Lord of the harvest. If you have no farming experience, don’t worry! The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few!

  • Cultural Information:

    When animals get sick or crops fail rural farmers don’t merely lose some income for the year, they often lose their very food source. These farmers live in fear of the evil spirits they believe control their lives, their crops, and the health of their animals and family. With more than 200 different people groups in that have yet to hear about the One who has power over nature and demons, there is great need and opportunity to share the Good News.

  • Geographic Information:

    Work on-site with rural farmers at the One Farm Training Center located outside a county seat city of almost 1 million people. At the Training Center, farmers will see examples of natural farming techniques and the results they produce. Other projects will require traveling out to remote villages on the Himalaya Mountain foothills 2-3 hours away from the city. Ascending from the city at 8000 feet, you may travel to nearly 14,000 feet of elevation where growing seasons are short and the climate harsh. These are the places and people that truly need to make the best of their land, their farming resources, and their time.
