funding and plans:
Funding is provided through private investment and donations.
Income is generated through local sales of eggs,
fruit, vegetables and small plants. Our re-investment programme
has enabled us to expand from 25 acres to 75 acres in the last 2 years. We plan to grow the crops and flocks to
commercially viable levels and then expand our operations. For
example, we have the space for a food preparation area in the barn and
plan to fit this for jam making to include more children from ECC
school. Ultimately we hope to be able to offer employment to
graduates of ECC.
We are grateful to local businesses who support us:
Pinewoods Nursery provides an outlet for our products as well materials.
National Marine helps us with our equipment and buildings.
Zig Zag Aviation provides equipment and manpower.
Island Bakery provides the bread for our boy's lunches
Every Child Counts gives financial and moral support
Dirk Reitsma & Melvern Wells have supported our farming efforts.
