Food For Everyone Foundation

Food for Everyone Foundation

Based on the Mittleider method of gardening the Foundation travels around the world teaching people in impoverished areas how to grow gardenswhich yield five to ten times more then traditional gardning methods.

Jim Kennard started the foundation and Dr. Mittleider asked him to personally oversee the continuation of his mission and teachings. Perhaps the most beneficial aspect of this organic gardening method is that it allows a family to feed themselves and earn a highly important income.

James B. (Jim) Kennard, the President of the Foundation, has a wealth of leadership, financial, business, teaching, and gardening training and experience upon which to draw in helping the Foundation to achieve its goals. He is a retired Certified Public Accountant (CPA), practicing as managing partner in a Salt Lake City firm since 1972, and has also owned and successfully managed several different businesses, including hotels, shopping centers, apartments, and retail establishments during the past twenty years.

Jim has been a Mittleider gardener for the past twenty-six years, he is a Master Mittleider Gardening Instructor, and has taught classes and worked one-on-one with Dr. Jacob Mittleider on several gardening projects in the USA and abroad.

Previous missions

For the past 37 years and continuing into the foreseeable future, many thousands of hours of research, clinical and field experimentation have been conducted in 75 research, teaching, and demonstration projects in more than 20 countries throughout the world - including conditions from sea level to 7,300' elevation, the equator to 54 degrees North latitude and 25 degrees South latitude. Soil types encountered have included virtually everything from straight sand to hard clay; PH has ranged from 4.4 to 8.9; and rainfall has varied from 8" to 140". This base of experience gives the foundation a unique ability to broadly replicate past successes into many more countries and locations.

Historically, approximately 3,000 students have been trained in 75 projects, with limited materials and meager funding.

Previous projects have been in Russian commonwealth countries, Latvia, four nations in Africa, Mexico, Honduras, Trinidad & Tobago, FIJI, Tonga, Okinawa, Papua New Guinea, New Britain, Canada, and the USA, plus others. The foundation's goal is to expand the program worldwide.

How to help the foundation

Help the Foundation

Are you interested in making a difference for good in the world?

It will require about $15,000 to create and conduct a Pilot-sized training garden project, with a seedling greenhouse, tools, equipment, materials, seeds, and instructional materials for up to 20 students - plus food for the students until the garden provides, and a translator. That will also provide a teacher for 3 months, and numerous other directly associated incidentals.

If you prefer to start on a smaller scale, let's review what it takes to accomplish several parts of a project:

· $5,000 can build a seedling greenhouse, stock it with trays, soil mix, and seeds, along with the other materials, tools and supplies necessary for a successful seedling production operation.

· A $2,500 gift will allow us to make micro-enterprise loans to 20 students, allowing them to go into business for themselves. This small amount of money, along with the knowledge and training we will provide, are the only things millions of people in the developing countries need to break the terrible cycle of poverty and ignorance which hold them in chains of misery.

· A gift of $2,000 could allow a pilot project to grow from 1 to 3 acres, by providing an 8 horsepower tiller! The difficult and time-consuming work of preparing the ground with shovels limits the size garden the students can grow.

· A $1,500 gift can provide seeds for 20 students to each grow a ¼ acre garden. Using the scientific principles and procedures we teach, a good student can expect a yield of $5,000 to 6,000 in a single 6 month growing season from a garden this size. And in most places we're going, these people struggle all year for $300-400!

· With only $1,250 you can assure 20 students a great yield of healthy vegetables on their own gardens by providing them a year's supply of natural mineral nutrients.

· For $1,000 you can provide classroom materials for an entire project! Imagine the feeling of knowing you have impacted the lives of 40-60 people (students and their families) forever.

· For assistance beyond the $5,000 level, which is sorely needed if we are to reach and help large numbers of people, please call us at 1-888-548-4449, and we will be thrilled to have your association in this great work.
