Farming God's Way Training Facility (Small Test Farm) in George, South Africa - Phase 1

In Southern Africa, poverty and malnutrition have been such destructive forces in many communities. Woman and children are particularly vulnerable, even though food is available, the cost of good nutrition is restrictive to many people. This is further impacted by a younger generation migrating to cities to get jobs and lifestyles that are often not available, leading to major social issues such as crime, gangs, and complete dependence on the social grant system. The impact in their rural home communities leads to an unbalanced older generation trying to maintain traditions, while the social generational order is broken.

Farming God's Way is a proven agriculture training program for helping alleviate poverty, restore dignity, improve nutrition, and share the Biblical principles all together. It is designed for Africa and has many testimonies of the impact it's had on individuals and communities. The great part is the Biblical pillar is a key part of the training, along with Management and Technology of farming.

We are in the process of establishing a small test farm and training facilities in George in South Africa for the local communities. Most of the funds we need is for leasing land, establishing water harvesting and irrigation, getting implements, tools, and seedlings to get going. We also need a shed or shipping containers that we can work and train from. The area we are in needs electric fencing to protect from wildlife, particularly the protected baboons in the area that raid the fields quiet often. We are looking at offering the training to communities in need, churches and schools. It would be ideal to get a small solar electricity system in place, as we have major issues with our national electricity supplier. This is to drive pumps and power the electric fencing for the training facility.

We will replicate what we do in George as a model to take to other regions and nations. We have opportunities in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Mozambique, and Lesotho in addition to George. This project forms a small part of a bigger vision we have for a sending platform for missions, where we do rapid equipping of believers to take up their call and go into any mountain of culture God calls them to.

We would love your help, encouragement, prayers, and any support you feel led to contribute. You can contact me at for more information.

God bless you and thank you for considering supporting our projects.

We had such fun with a class of over 30 children and many adults in Gqeberha. Here we are making a high nutrient compost, everyone helping to build the heap.

Most of the initial training will be around Garden's of Faithfulness, small manageable gardens that learners can grow vegetables in at home, in a small area. This can then progress to a bigger farm later as experience is developed. I recently worked with a friend who runs the training farm at a local church in another province, where the demand in communities for bigger farms is high. Community leaders are seenig this as a great partnership, to feed the community, develop skills and become income producing.
