We are very blessed in that we have two primary schools very near our farm in Mayuge. This means there are always tons of children in and around our farm (especially during mango season!). I’ve been looking for ways that I can partner with one or both of these schools so that we can teach the children Farming God’s Way as well as share the Gospel with them. They each have gardens where they try to grow some food for the school, but have not had a huge amount of success. Here are some pics of the children planting their garden very late in the season because they were waiting on free seeds from the government and the results of their efforts.
We’ve had teachers from both schools at the farm and have given them tours. One of the teachers came back on Friday and brought the headmaster and another teacher. I gave them a tour of the farm and they were so excited about Farming God’s Way that they are dedicating a portion of their garden to a demonstration farm for their children to learn Farming God’s Way next season. They are coming to the farm in a week and a half to bring all of their students for a tour!
We are very excited to begin this partnership with St. Joseph Primary School and pray that God will use this partnership in a mighty way!
