Our first special project of 2016 is underway at Native American Christian Academy in Sun Valley AZ... the scholl was previously named Sun Valley Indian School. Under the leadership of Kris Miller, NACA's new Executive Director, we are partnering to develop a state-of-the-art garden project that will provide nutritional and agricultural education and food to the students and staff in residence.
Operation 29:11 provided a complete hydroponic tower garden system to the school in late 2016 and this week we received the first photographs of the planted garden located in the school's library. This is a very preliminary step in a project that we envision to encompass hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic gardening methods in a controlled environment that will teach students the most modern methods of efficient, small foot-print agriculture that can be used year round for healthy food production.
The project will require a large steel building and the latest technology in electrical generation capability. Under Kris' direction the campus buildings are currently being retrofitted with metal roofs and rain-water catch systems.
At this time our most important need is your prayer support as we begin meeting with professionals that have volunteered to assistance us with project development. I cringe at using 'project planning' so I have not... if I have learned anything the hard way in the last 8 years it is that 'God Plans' and 'man prepares' for that plan. So be it.
