We love animals. They make up a big part of our farm project in Panama. the Bible declares that a righteous man takes care of his animals (Proverbs 12:10) and this is what we teach employees and community members around our farm. Amazingly many of the animals of our community gravitate our way and want to be a part of what we're doing. We are kind of like the animal whisperers of our area because we are kind, honoring and friendly to them all.
Our first animals are our dogs. Chombo the top dog of the community hangs out at the farm, though he lives down the street. He is best friends with Elvis. Elvis is our rescue dog. He loves everyone. He's a pit bull but he doesn't know it. Though he's not the sharpest tool in the shed, he likes to think that he's a good watch dog and loves to bark at anything that moves. Elvis thinks he's a human. Pinky and Soldier are our worker's dogs and they love everyone too.

We have lots of rabbits for a very specific purposes on our vegetable farm. They are quickly becoming the organic engine that drives our farm. They eat grass, kale, spinach, collard greens, swiss chard, red peppers, lettuce, carrots and banana leaves. In return they give us cool nitrogen poop that we use to make rabbit tea and feed the entire farm. It's amazing how the farm works symbiotically and cyclically with rabbits. With the rabbit program we are able to drop our fertilizer costs from commercial to organic and save around 80% on the total monthly bill.
Come visit our farm. Put on your gloves and help us plant, grow, harvest and dehydrate. Feed the children, care for widows, help the community build their new homes with concrete floors instead of dirt floors. Love the indigenous and teach their children. Help us build team housing and organic farm infrastructure. There is so much to do to help the world around us. It all begins here at the prototype farm in Panama
