AGAPE IN ACTION FARMING
The Agape in Action farms continue to grow! There are two stand-outs, the Mutongoi farm in Kenya and the Edith Home of Hope farm in India. In Kenya, our local farmer has taken what was a very average farm and turned it into an incredible production farm. It’s very exciting to see a dry and desolate place producing an abundance of food.
In India, the farm is located at the Edith Home and is managed by the old people at the home. This farm is also quite remarkable. It’s very productive and provides a diverse range of fruit and vegetables as well as fresh milk from the small dairy. It also provides meaningful activity for the residents of the home and give them a real sense of purpose.
