After completion of the 32 bed house, admission will be done which will automatically bring the need for food supply high.
For this reason, HCF has already started preparing to counter this challenge stress free. To test the waters, we cultivated 3 acres of land which we used to plant maize, beans, several types of vegetation for the animals and vegetables for consumption in the home. As a pilot project we consider it successful. We harvested over 500KG of beans, we have sufficient vegetables and a good ammount of maize. Our animals already have some quality grass.
This project does not only benefit those resident in HCF ministry but neighbors and the many people we reach out to outside our geographical area. A very common thing in the neighborhood is lack of fresh produce due to the prolonged drought. We believe our borehole will provide enough water to counter the drought challenge and thus supply fresh produce to our neighbors all through the year.
We use manure from our animals which guarantees production of excellent organic crops.
The community around us is already experiencing some relief since they don’t have to travel far in search of water and vegetables but they get them from our farm. We also sale fresh milk from our dairy cows at very subsidized prices.
