We see the future of the children of Cambodia as one that helps them to be productive members of their society. Learning progressive methods of farming will give them skills they can apply. We need your help to create a farm and education center.

Dear Friends:

I moved to Siem Reap, Cambodia about one year ago with the intention of establishing a small sustainable organic farm. I began in an outlying village of Siem Reap. It quickly became apparent that it would be of benefit to the community to turn this farm into a socially interactive learning center for the local school children teaching modern farming techniques in a fun and hands-on way, and at the end of the day producing and providing the kids and their families with organic healthier food alternatives as well as new knowledge.
I call this The Organic - Learning Farm.

Over the next year I put my hands, body and soul to happily working the Earth seven days a week and I created the farm. In the process I exhausted my personal finances, but was most fortunate to find a single benefactor who rescued The Learning Farm from bankruptcy. Sadly this benefactor recently lost his own source of income and has struggled to help The Learning Farm over the last month leaving us teetering toward extinction just as our 125 ducks, 60 chickens and 1,000 crickets are to begin egg-laying and regeneration.

Our immediate financial needs are small by Western standards. One dollar goes a long way in Cambodia. Any contribution is very helpful and appreciated. I have set a fund-raising goal here as required by the crowd-funding application. If I were to actually reach near that goal of $10,000 there is almost no end to the possibilities of expansion, diversification etc. that The Organic Learning Farm could achieve. As it is, we are in a struggle for survival.

I wish for everyone to know that their contribution is an investment in education, healthy food and a self-sustaining better future for the local children and their families. The possibilities are endless.

Thank you for caring.
