Our aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible in order to rely less on outside aid. Our home runs 100% on the generous donations of our supporters but every month we struggle to make ends meet. With this in mind we have plans to develop our Biblical Garden further in order to help us be more sustainable in the future.
- Environmental Education
The Biblical Garden will have many different species of plants and trees as described in our Biblical Garden Guide; rosebushes, olive trees, mustard tree, vineyards together with may medicinal and aromatic plants. We already grow a wide variety of vegetables and have orange, sweet lemon, grapefruit and mandarin trees providing fruit. Two years ago we began providing our own honey with seven bee hives. We hope to build a chapel or meeting hall on site where we can host talks and workshop to local community school and visitors who are keen to learn more about the botanical garden.
- Café / Shop on site
The café will be an area for visitors to relax and take in our beautiful garden and savour our locally made snacks. The shop will sell products made on site such as honey and jams. We hope as well that together the café´ and shop will help us raise further funds for the Homes as well as provide a space for our visitors to enjoy.
- Accommodation on site for visitors to the Gardens and Homes
We hope to attract more & more visitors as the Biblical Garden develops and we fully expect this after the local press attention and nationally we have had recently. With this is mind we want to ensure we have somewhere on site for our visitors to stay who would like to take in the Gardens and surrounding area for relaxation, personal reflection and / or study of the Scripture
