Plan your work and work your plan

"It Is Not Our Part To Master All The Tides Of The World, But To Do What Is In Us For The Succour Of Those Years Wherein We Are Set ... So That Those Who Live After May Have A Clean Earth To Till." - Gandalf

The need to fully grasp the importance of having good counsel and a clear path to success in place is vital before your begin a project. Listening to the guidance of the 'Gandalf's' in our community helped us tremendously. Before the first fence post was put in place, or soil amendment was added, we had a clear and concise plan, and more importantly, a noble purpose and reason for creating the school farm. It was a long-term plan to not only build the school farm, but to use it to teach and train the future generations how to grow healthy soil and food, and how to take care the of world they have been given during their time on it.

"Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world; small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere." - Elrond

This detailed business plan and working diagram (see below farm layout) provided the 'small hands' of our team the direction and vision needed to move the wheels of the world and get the job done quickly and effectively. At the same time, it caught the eyes of 'the great' and ultimately helped deliver the school districts approval to start the School Farm, and also the initial grant funding needed to build it. Before starting your school farm, be sure to find and engage the wise wizards within your community (landscape architects, business experts, and fellowship members). You won't regret it.
