We are getting started on a vision to use the Lord's twenty acres of our campus for an Agricultural Adventure! We'd love for you to join us!
The trek to Sequim on September 25 to expand our agricultural awareness at the "Back to Eden" garden was very beneficial. As a school it affirms that we are headed in the right direction for agricultural development.
Here are some ideas we are looking to begin implementing before Thanksgiving.
1. Create and approve a basic site plan for locating our crops and orchard
2. Install a mobile chicken coop in the lower field - we have 7 chickens ready to go - Chickens will prepare the ground for future gardens and also provide nutrient rich fertilizer in bulk quantity - plus eggs for consumption
3. Plant fruit trees as they become available (families can purchase a tree for $25)
4. Spread wood chips in our orchard and crop locations (this will depend on wood chip availability). We will get the word out to local tree companies to drop chips for free.
5. All this would be in cooperation and participation with the science classes and learning for the students
6. If you haven't yet go to the website www.backtoedenfilm.com this will give you a basic understanding of organic gardening and a unique approach to growing healthy, nutrient rich foods.
We now have a bank account line item to receive tax-deductible donations towards this project. If you would like to invest or know someone please contact Pastor Nuss at rnuss@ACSknights.org.
We will need some income to purchase seeds, plants, and a TRACTOR!!! We'll hear back soon about our grant application for this purpose.
