We are launching a new project in Mexico. We do get ideas from time-to-time from family, friends, co-workers and social media. It may look like we or I don’t always listen. But most ideas do go to a shelve and get a revisit when needed. This is one of those ideas that I got from my aunt.
Using tins and papers that is organic material as fertilizer for a vegetable garden. It is 2m x 1m and can feed a family of 4 people.
The Benefits of the Tin Garden
- It produces vegetables quickly
- Take-up very little space
- Uses very little water
- Make use of everyday household goods.
- If you plant it correctly you don’t need pesticides.
Expand is and always will be a church planting organization. Our main focus is to make disciples of Jesus. But we also have to show the love of Christ
Why do we do humanitarian projects?
But sometimes our communities need help. And we prefer practical and sustainable help.
We do it also because the Bible tells us also. Jesus told us if our brother or sister in the Lord needs help and we can help we have to show the love of Christ 1 John 3:16
If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?
James 2:15-16 NKJV
That is why you will see from time to time we post special projects that we do through our churches. Is to show the Love of Christ
In Mexico there has been a food shortage and some of our communities have been affected.
What is our next step?
I’m going to do a test garden as an example and will blog about it in the next few weeks. Then on my next trip to our Church in Campeche, I will do a garden on our church property and then Expand from there to our members and then to the rest of the community.
How can you help?
You can partner with us financially. We need picks and shovels and seeds. Our operational cost for a garden is $50. You can feed a family for the rest of their lives for $50.
