The guest speaker will be Joe Perkins. Growing up in a family of 10, producing and preserving food was a necessity! As an adult Joe, worked in the computer and data processing field and also served as a pastor. “After traveling to Haiti on a mission trip, I saw the need for the development of a sustainable food supply. I began spending time there, working in their rocky soil.” Joining with other missionaries, Joe began teaching the residents of Haiti how to increase their food production by installing raised beds. Soon after, he began hoop house construction. Besides our work in Haiti, we have also built a large shade house for an orphanage in Honduras and we have also done some work in Mexico.”
