Update from Jubilee Farm

jubileeUpdate from Jubilee Farm from Jonny Hanson:

We’re raising £300,000 to purchase a small farm outside Larne, where we can bring our ambitious plans for Jubilee Farm to fruition, with organic pigs, poultry, goats and vegetables, plus an internship programme, and even “glamping” in due course.  Already, we’ve raised £165,000 from existing supporters to purchase the farmhouse.  Now, we need to raise £135,000 to buy the 13.5 acres of land, as well as polytunnels and other equipment, by Christmas.  As a Community Benefit Society – a form of cooperative social enterprise – we’re raising this money via a community share offer, making this the first community-owned farm in Northern Ireland.  Launching in Belfast on 20th October, the minimum investment in the project starts from only £50, making it the perfect Christmas present!All over the world and all over Ireland, Christians and churches are rediscovering their mandate to care for creation.  Please consider joining us in putting this mandate into practice at Jubilee Farm.
