Selling Apples to Help Plant Fruit Trees in the Central Africa Republic

YAKIMA, WA (October 28, 2013)—Ten Covenant churches will participate in bagging more than 600 pounds of pre-purchased apples on Saturday that were sold to raise $7,000 for a research and training farm in the Central Africa Republic (CAR).

Individual churches held pre-sales of apples, selling ten-pound bags for $10 each. That is equivalent to the cost of planting two fruit trees at the Centre d’Expérimentation et de Formation Agricole (Center for Experimentation and Training in Agriculture) in the CAR, says Mark Swanson, pastor of Wiley Heights Covenant Church in Yakima, which is facilitating the project.

We need you! Join the CA Olive Harvest this Sunday!

Join members of the Davis Community Church and the Davis Community Corn Growing Project this Sunday 10/27 to harvest olives between the hours of 11am and 3 or 4pm. You do not need to commit to the whole afternoon--even if you have just an hour or two, we'll take it! We'll need responses from at least 20-30 people in the next day or two in order to move forward; otherwise, we will have to pass this year. Please respond to dcc_cornproject@yahoo.com if you are willing and able to pick. 

For a second year, the olives they pick will be milled by Mike Madison in Winters, bottled, labeled and sold after Sunday services – with 100 percent of the revenue going to support an FRB agriculture development project in a developing county sponsored by the Foods Resource Bank (foodsresourcebank.org). You don’t have to be in America to dream.
