THE FARMING PROJECT

Moving some of our initiatives into a self-sustaining model has been a vision of CEDS since the beginning.  A couple of years ago we began a farming project which is a step in that direction.  We have been able to provide full-time employment to two men and one woman and grown various crops for consumption within our centers snack and lunch programs and we grown all of the vegetables which are given in our nutrition program. 

 

The pictures below show some of what we are growing and providing to local families and consuming here on site.
