What will you do with the produce from the farm?

The answer to this question is one of the most important ways that we generate interest in our program with our neighbors and bring about goodwill toward our project within our community in the Jordan Valley.  One of our main goals is to give the farmers around us in the Middle Ghor a sense that they have a stake and a share in our work and to invite them to drop in and see what we are doing.  This shared location for gathering and the shared goal of seeing our project succeed builds community. 

With the end goal of building community in mind we will sell our produce through a number of venues and use the money to fund a community infrastructure project.  This year we will be donating funds to fix the broken canal system from the Karama Dam that carries water to several hundred farming families in the Middle Ghor.  This infrastructure rehabilitation project will save thousands of cubic meters of water per year allowing farmers greater access to low cost water for many years to come.
