Each spring, Orchard Hill invites participants to sponsor a “row of crops” by donating $25 or more to purchase seeds for planting. We have eighty acres (near Dike) designated for this project. While the seed is donated by our congregation, the harvest depends on the local farmers. Many of them donate their time, equipment, gas, semis, etc to harvest the crops! This project has a multiplying effect. Last year it had over a 300% return on investment!
In the past few years, we've been able to encourage our Mozambique partners with agricultural initiatives after a cyclone damaged their crops, partnered with Try Pie in the purchase of their food truck, and supported Agricultural college students in Haiti as they get their degrees (which will impact the food sustainability in Haiti as they share their learnings). These are just a few of the ways this project is able to impact the world.
If you'd like to give to this project this year, it will make an impact! Visit orchardcentral.info/give with “Growing Project” in the memo. You may also drop a check in the offering on a Sunday. Thanks for being a part of this mission!
