What is the Eden Project?

The Eden Project is our agricultural program that provides a plot of land, complete with irrigation and seeds/plants for every family in the Isaiah Center and Seeds of Hope Programs. After training and agricultural teaching; the responsibility for the upkeep, maintenance and weeding of these plots is handed onto the families for their individual plots.
 
Food is a huge need for all the Roma (Gypsy) families in FMN's programs due to the poverty and lack of work opportunities that they endure; the goal and vision of this project is to provide a way for these families to not only learn the skills they need to be able to grow vegetables for themselves, but also providing a plot of land and the tools/materials needed with which to do that. When there is a surplus of food on their plots the families are encouraged to sell the remaining crops which can provide a small source of income too. 

How can I be involved?
