Using years of administrative experience in both the government and private sector, my life's focus is creating agricultural opportunities for the disadvantaged by coupling the power of the human spirit with the resources of the individual goodness of corporate entities and local governments.
I have a powerful vision of a sustainable future which empowers all people, across social classes, ethnicities and creeds to not just survive in the challenges we find ourselves in, but to thrive.It is not enough to create a sustainable future which relies on green elitism and leaves behind entire classes of people as we make the monumental cultural shift to a sustainable future.I believe firmly in Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.That belief inspires me to seek new and innovative ways to lend a hand up to those in need, to give respect to the divinity within each of us and recognize its immeasurable power to be restorative and self sufficient.
My personal philosophy can best be summed up by the words of Thomas Jefferson who said:
"Those who labour in the Earth, are the chosen people of God...It is the focus in which he keeps alive that sacred fire, which otherwise might escape from the face of the Earth."
Farming is not a vocation, it’s a calling.A call to stewardship of not just land, but mankind.Jefferson knew that you are truly free only when you can be self sufficient.Free will, our greatest God destined gift, is only present when you are no longer dependent on society to subsist, but instead, subsist to create freedom for those who cannot fight for freedom themselves.
