Have you ever listened to a Kindergartener explain how watermelons grow on trees or chicken eggs magically appear in the grocery store? So have we! And the lack of knowledge is heartbreaking.
That's why my family and I have decided years ago to give back to our community and start a homestead. That lets children experience hands-on how their food is grown and taste the difference between homegrown and store-bought.
After we were discharged from the military in 2014, we began our journey with a 1/2 acre of land in Missouri. We spent 4 years growing a variety of fruits and vegetables and enjoyed donating to the local food bank and elderly neighbors. But unfortunately, soon found out that our dreams and goals for the homestead are too big for the land we had. So, we moved!
We are now in Texas and own 23 acres, and we are ready to continue our mission and start again with even bigger goals and projects. And we are inviting YOU to be part of our journey.
At Leddy's Homestead, we seek to help children and communities to understand the importance of growing gardens and the benefits of fresh produce. Children in today's world grow up with too many frozen dinners and fast foods. That's why we are creating an educational family homestead to bring back the value and knowledge of fresh eating and healthy living; but we still have a lot to accomplish.
We need your support to establish our fruit tree orchard "Obstkorb" (which translated means Fruit basket in German) build more enclosures to add animals and attractions for children to enjoy.
In phase 2 we plan to add cabins to the backwoods to allow families and especially veterans to enjoy nature, learn about homesteading and get time away from life stressors. As a caregiver to a disabled veteran, I know how overwhelming and stressful life can get for them and we want to share the therapeutic benefits of nature and the animals with them.
Would you consider donating to help us achieve our mission?
We would be happy to provide you with more information about how you or your company can help us grow.
Please contact us at 903-500-8284 or email@example.com if you have any questions.
Your donation will be used to establish the fruit tree orchard, new enclosures or attractions for children to learn about agriculture, eating healthy and raising livestock.
- Please join us! With your help, we’re one step closer to fulfilling our mission to serve the community and educate our children about a healthier way of life!
