In 2009 God placed upon the hearts, of Pastor Joyce and Pastor David, to help people to become more self sufficient, teaching them how, to plant their own garden, as well as can and to prepare their own food. Our vision and goal, is to reach as many families, as we can in the communities, churches, senior citizens, and the children. To reach our goal, we began to network, with others, for we know God has not called us to do this alone. Our gardens are totally green and organic, and bio-dynamic; we do all we can do to maintain to stay in the guidelines of being organic. All of our seeds, fertilizers, farm equipment, etc., are being given, and received through donations, from those who have a desire and heart to help others become more self sufficient. Our motto is this, “if I feed a man a meal he can only eat once but if I teach that man how to plant a garden he can eat a lifetime.”
Our very first garden was Steps Victory Garden. When we started this garden we only had a shovel, a hoe, and a cultivator, the will power to work on a 2/10th of an acre, and this ground had never been worked before. With much prayer, and endeavor, this garden, surpassed even, the agriculture department, and we were told it was better than their very own garden. He asked us who taught us to plant this way, and we let him know that, we use what we had learned from our parents. He said what you are doing, is called square foot gardening. It is amazing how we do so many things in life, not knowing what it is, but we know that, it is our way of survival, for our family. I am sure that our parents, had no idea of the proper terms but, knew what was passed on from generation, to generation, to generation. We would like to offer our ministry to your church, communities, children, senior citizens. All we are asking from you is, your time and a listening ear. If you find that what we have, is not something you would like then, please pass on this brochure, to someone that you know, it would help to become more self sufficient.
For those who have land, we will supply you with all the seeds, to help, you plant your garden. All we ask of you, is to supply us, with a list of seeds, that you would like to plant. We cannot guarantee, specific types of seed, but we can give you seeds. If you need help in planting your garden we will offer help as well. If you do not have land and still want seeds we will teach you how to plant your own food through storage container or planter boxes, for indoor growing. Also we can plant the garden for you, on our property, and deliver the food, to your home, from our community garden. We are in need, of churches, to allow us, to plant a garden on their property, helping the church family, as well as the community. For those that can help, when you have planted your garden, if God speaks to your heart, would you seed back to this ministry, through your garden, this will help us to continue to help, and feed others.
