The continuing success of the project depends on bringing more partners into the project so our growth will continue at present rates. There are many benefits of becoming a partner church including:
There are three Levels of involvement for Project Partners:
General partner – many churches, businesses and individuals make an initial or regular donation to the project or a specific aspect of it while assessing their ability to take on a full FFS. Some churches often give part of their Harvest offering.
Full Farmer Field School partner - A commitment to partnering with one specific farm school for the three years of their assistance. Costs at present are £6,500 per year for three years. So far all churches who have started with one farm school have gone onto partnering a 2nd when the 1st FFS has finished it's training programme. All Project Partners have also visited with a team at least once.
Deanery Partner –Some project Partners have taken on the task of not only partnering one or more Farm schools but finding other churches/businesses/individuals whom they have a relationship with to become partners with them in a specific Deanery- usually 3-4 parishes.
New friendships are made on Partner visits
