Earthcare Foundation

A YWAM Oxford Ministry Partner

The Heart of the Ministry

Our heart is for people to come into a revelation that we are all sons and daughters of our heavenly Father, that He loves to work with us in His garden on earth. A vision to restore a love relationship between God our Father, His children and the rest of His creation.

The Purpose of our Work Shops

  1. Teaching about and experiencing God as our Father with His children in His garden, planet earth; rediscovering the design,  beauty and fruitfulness that comes as relationships in all creation are restored.
  2. Learning through demonstration and teaching simple appropriate ways to grow food while restoring and protecting the earth’s natural resources.
  3. To enable people and communities to help run earthcare workshops, learning in ways in harmony with their culture and climate.
  4. Our target groups is anyone with a passion and desire to create fruitful gardens and restore God’s earth, those who love to see people grow in intimacy with God their heavenly Father as His beloved children.
  5. When it happens the website will be updated when we have upcoming workshops or schools.
