-Tree services give us wood chips. We inoculate them with fungi and grow edible mushrooms.
-We have turned old tires into staircases, and logs from the forest into raised garden beds.
-Construction sites give us throwaway wood and other materials. We build animal housing, farm infrastructure, and share with others.
-Restaurants give us food waste. We make soil and feed animals.
-Our local community gives us fall leaves, straw bales, and pumpkins. We mulch our gardens, and provide food and bedding for livestock. We have even fed people meals from others’ fall decoration pumpkins!
All of these things are wonderful, but they mean nothing without people! People come to Keipos wanting to learn how to grow food and heal land. Through relationship, people are being equipped, empowered, and sent into the world with new lenses and inspiration to make the world a better place!
Your waste streams are converted into productive, edible, and beautiful things. Imagine what we could do if you shared with us out of your abundance!
#GivingTuesday is just around the corner (next week), a time for giving back with hearts of gratitude. We invite you to join in this global event and support your favorite non-profits, and we invite you to give to Keipos this season.
On Tuesday, a $250 donation will go to feed a family in need next year for 20 weeks. Donations as small as $5 will help to provide a meal to a volunteer or Keipos guest. Donations of $1,000 or more will help us to provide 3-day courses devoted to food/farming education for the most impoverished in our community and in Nicaragua.
We are so grateful to you who have partnered with us and who will do so this coming season! Make your gift today and through November 29th. We will count all new donations between today and next Tuesday towards #GivingTuesday, and these funds will be directed towards providing food and education for those who need it most.
Thank you for your support of Keipos!
