The program allows them to live in a quality weather tight home, grow organic vegetables, have a space for raising livestock and have their own supply of clean drinking water; all for an affordable monthly payment.  KN says that these improvements to their lives are not only going help their income but his family’s health as well.  The church farm where he works is adjacent to the Development lot, where his new home is, so he even reduced his daily commute!
