Our vision is to support sustainable growth and development of the region to get a balanced relationship between farmland, housing and commercial areas.

On our Land, we organically grow food crops and have products made from our produce, this include planting of native tree species, composing for soil fertility, inter-croping and water catchment protection.
We are training and feeding orphans of God is Great Orphanage and members of the Better World Cooperative Society. One of our fundamental efforts has been to build up stable humus in the soil through composing, which has produced high yields of nutritious, high quality food.
