Humble Farm Refuge (HFR)

$590 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 48 months

Where it all started, agritourism. We are now a 501c3 organization with the goal of helping disenfranchised individuals, disaster preparedness and raising $250,000 by December 2017, for land, housing and farm equipment!

Campaign re-energized 5/11/2017, New Theme: Mastering the art of doing more with less and that is how we grew this point!


(((Sustainable living, Alternative building, Organic gardening, Complimenting the processes of Nature)))
So many opportunities and so little time, which do I take? Was talking with a nice lady, on a very prominent farm and her main question to me was: How are you going to fund this? She also talked about a serious problem in America, "people buying what they cannot afford" and this is a systemic problem in our country today. 

To be the absolute most friendliest and helpful place on the planet, Humble Farm Refuge is another opportunity to advance and invoke divine care for anyone. 

Down home healthy cooking, canning, smoking, preserving....We are about Self-sustainable living, creating better relationships, sharing ideals, skills, talents, tools, activities and events. Uplifting the human spirit is whats needed and uniting seniors and youth to reconnect generations.

What are we doing with our Veterans and/or disenfranchised individuals? Who would not want a home away from home to call home? Who would not want to support the preparation of a safe and secure place, in which to retreat, in case of disaster? Who would not want a grand, nondenominational, but spiritual space within to interact in Nature; participate in activities focused on uniting people, reconnecting to the you within, while practicing self-sustainable living? We are starting from "scratch" and very passionate about our  vision.

Time to expand our greenhouse. How can you do anything without actually doing it and taking the necessary steps to maintain it? HFR is operating and open to visitors now, and you are cordially invited to participate. However, if for some unknown reason this land campaign falls short, contributions will be used to further the development, maintenance and planning of our current location, built in "1895".

Help us help you! When we think about a life of greatness, we think about a life of service, and what could be more beneficial and productive than "a grand space and place" in which to do this all?-- Inspired by First Fruits Farm  There is a huge difference between commercial farming and ''farm to table"; "farm to table" is for what we are striving.

We keep mentioning "grand space and place" because of our passion for a dear friend of the same works in Afrika and it is also our goal to unite, and connect our project to his project, which is Toubakolong, The Gambia, West Afrika. We are all connected. Read more: Toubakolong Partnership, Ogbonna Mossi ... - Your Inner Voice http://www.your-inner-voice.com/ToubakolongPartnership.html

Most talented and skilled but? We have identified "55 acres", in Patterson, Georgia, to be the first farm home, away from home, for Humble Farm Refuge (HFR). This plot of land is most important and appealing because of location, off the beaten path, down a long dirt road, in rural back woods Georgia. Due to the "impeccable credentials" of the current owner, it's not what you do as much as why. The current owner is a long time resident and landowner in Patterson, GA, very dependable, an amazing builder and businessman, who is very compassionate about and instrumental in establishing this location, in the absolute most effective and efficient manner possible.

We used to know... This honorable gentleman is asking $165, 000 for this beautiful hide-away, free from most urban distractions. Our Goal is to raise $250, 000 by December 2017, in order to further ensure the development of this property.

In our quest to take the road less traveled, please do all you can to get the word out.  By today's standards, this is less, just a drop in the bucket for another opportunity, another challenge, to take aggressive action in creating, preserving and maintaining our interdependence. It is another unique opportunity to ensure our investment grows. With everyone doing just a little, this goal can be easily reached, in the most expedient manner possible.

Work for food and board, living off the land, using modern technology, being interdependent facilitates success. Pack your bags, bring your tent, your RV or borrow ours because we are inviting you to visit and be a part of our work in progress; participate in helping us with our projects. We are most appreciative of any gifts to our 501 C 3 tax-deductible organization, in order to encourage and further our goals.

Thank you for your wisdom and encouragement!

Art, Founder Humble Farm Refuge.

Building a successful business is a serious challenge... requires well more than what we are accustom to doing. Well, ‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.’

What I am experiencing now? Why do people want to derail and/or drag your mission? "I really appreciate what you are doing 'but...', I don't like snakes, spiders, water, darkness, insects, heights, heat, smart work....but I really appreciate what you're doing and would love to participate". YOu want to participate but you have all these conditions. NOW, I understand what Harriet Ross Tubman meant: "Had they only known...".

My questions to you are "What do you bring to the table, where is the adventure in it and who does it benefit"? Moving forward is a two-way street and prosperity is where all parties experience new ground and new growth.

Nidal Safi--- The greatest gift that the Creator of the heavens & earth has given us is the divine ability to enjoy true happiness. We have the ability to enjoy life when things are going well & enjoy being at peace when things aren't going well. It's this ability that prevents us from damaging our brains and other organs and becoming physically & emotionally sick by living in an unbalanced & emotional state of anger, fear, worry, guilt, greed, envy, verbal & physical aggression, narcissism & etc. The man in the above photo looks like he's enjoying being at peace.---Thank you for sharing. ---Art and believe you me, it was much work and sacrifice in getting here and still is, but it's all worth it now!!

Tip from today: Awareness, Decision and Action!

A friendly place, unless otherwise provoked, a farm, a refuge, willing to be available and included in the network of farmers as, this is what we do in America.

Depending on you, how you conduct yourself... one of us is available/open for business... we will leave the lights on for you, if you are interested and work in agriculture.

Conscious people creating and building an agricultural community, for people and by people.

hhhh!
