Our Farm

 
 

Our third area of focus is developing a farm that will sell produce and products to help fund the village, provide work for our Christian foster parents, and train locals in entrepreneurship and local job skills.

We are currently working to develop a working for-profit farm that will raise marketable produce, create marketable craft products, provide local labour and construction services, encourage community cooperation, provide work for foster care-givers, and create an income stream to help defray the operational costs of The Village at 7 Rivers.

We are also planning on the construction and development of a skills training centre focusing on income-generating activities such as local crafts, bee-keeping, welding, carpentry, baking, herbs, soaps, candles, and poultry.  We also want to provide basic accounting and business planning seminars to help trainees get jobs or start up small businesses that can flourish in our community.
