Past Conferences

Our mission is to encourage and nurture young people, families, gardeners and farmers to grow into God's given plan for agriculture

For them to “become industrious and self-supporting, very many must have assistance, encouragement, and instruction. There are multitudes of poor families for whom no better missionary work could be done than to assist them in settling on the land and in learning how to make it yield them a livelihood.” - Ministry of Healing p.192.2
