Foundations for Farming Principles
1 ) On time
The preparations are started on time so that the farmers are ready when the rain comes and they can sow. In this way we are responsible for the time that God gives us. Plan well, prepare well and start work on time, so that plants can take full advantage of the seasons.
2) At standard
They encourage farmers to work at a high quality level and have standard guidelines, so that it is clear to people what they can do. For example, corn is sown in plant holes that are 60 cm apart and there is 75 cm between the rows. Thus they bring order and structure to the fields.
3) Without waste
Everything God gives in nature is carefully used with the amenities that God gives. Thus the soil is covered with the residual materials of the plants; in this way dehydration is prevented and the soil is enriched. Compost is also placed in the plant holes so that the soil is extra enriched and the soil life is stimulated. No time, soil, water, sunlight, seeds, nutrients and energy are wasted. No material or land is burned.
4) With joy
They work with pleasure because they work in God’s beautiful creation. They also know that God cares for them and sees them. They are aware of the love of God that becomes most visible in what Jesus did for us. Whoever does this without self-pity, blaming others, jealousy or complaint, but works with a grateful heart for God, He wants to reward by taking away fear and insecurity and turning it into hope and joy.
