Our infrastructure development is almost complete! All that’s left is the details.
Were updating our budget plan!
Bonne Terre invites you to be part of our work on the farm!
We rely on your active participation and funding to cover the costs of running the farm. These include but are not limited to:
- Staff salaries and summer student staff
- Repairs, tools, supplies, and ongoing maintinence
- Farm Development
- Staff training opportunities
- Veterinary care
- Education and malnutrition programs
- Special Project Development (Security Building construction, Gazebo construction, etc.)
We can’t do all this without you, but we can accomplish this together!
We have lots of ways for you to get involved! Want to help employ people? $2500 provides a job, a daily meal and medical care for one staff. Student Staff – we employ students when they are on break and weeks to help them learn skills and earn money $350 per student. Want to help us increase our egg production? $10/chicken helps us do that! In order for us to host different groups in our community and provide a meal we need to get our kitchen, gazebo and security space done! That will finish up our infrastructure, and $9500 will make that happen! You can keep up with all the progress and what is happening on the farm through our FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM and BLOG
