Hello world!

First and foremost we are farmers, and caretakers of our little spot here. We are thankful to our Heavenly Father for His provision. As a family, we are all about educating, and helping others. It can be difficult to feed a family or group of people in this economy, and in many places around the world. It is our passion to help.  We realize that we are an unusual collection  of life experience, education and profession.  Had we been told years ago that we would have this unique blend, I would have though it not possible.  But here we are, and can see the hand of God prepared us for a life of service to others, in a unique way. When led by the Lord, we have spent time helping those in need in the different countries by designing and building aquaponics systems to feed small and large group, and even helped put sustainable farming systems in place. We also teach those people how to successfully manage them.  We will do the same in the USA.  We have also taught aquaponics in juvenile detention facilities, for community resiliency events and other groups in the USA.  We have helped set systems up, and teach vermicomposting at alternative and main stream public schools, colleges, clubs and for WIC Gov’t agency and  abroad. We have given workshops on Growing Fodder sustianably. We will soon be holding workshops on growing sustainable alternative feeds, to help others, gain the knowledge and skill to be able to sustainably feed their own livestock on a tight budget. We live what we teach.  We are so pleased to be able to teach about aquaponics, vermiculture, raising your own sustainable foods for your family and/or your livestock. Please feel free to look around this website for specific information.  If you do not find the information you need, on our website, please send us an e-mail with your quest for information.

Please be patient as we  squeek out the time to build this site.  We live life to the hilt, and don’t spend it behind a computer screen. There is always plenty to do: farm fowl and critters to care for, crops to tend, cleaning, fish to feed, and redworms to wrangle…and of course fun to be had.
