At the farm we are currently in need of a farm vehicle that will help us transport folks from point A to point B as well as provide useful transit between areas of the farm. Please consider partnering with Island Encounters in equipping us with a new mode of transportation.

Pay off the Land
We had to take out a loan to buy the farm, but we stepped out in faith to make this purchase in order to give birth to the ministry of Island Encounters. Now we house and train missions teams, demonstrate sustainable agriculture and serve as a resource and light to the community. Please help us along our journey to become debt-free so that we can continue to improve Oasis Farm and expand our ministry!

Renovate & Furnish The Farm House
The Farm House is the old tin house on the property that was originally there when we bought the farm. Inside the house you will find the main kitchen and pantry that we use to cook food for all our mission teams. There are two storage rooms and a guest room which houses the farm’s caretaker, Byron, and his wife Kampo. The amount of work this house needs is rather daunting! We’re raising funds to continue to improve (and partially rebuild) this important central structure. So far the kitchen and guest room have been renovated, but the bathroom, shower and meeting room are in desperate need of help! We’re also looking for donations to help us furnish the house.

Build an Aquaponics System

Plant A Tree: $5/Tree
Partner with Island Encounters by helping us plant vital trees on the farm. We’d like to plant papaya, citrus, banana, guava, avocado, soursop and many more! Someday we’d love to have orchards of trees along with fruit-producing trees scattered throughout the farm. Help us plant one, and maybe someday you can come pick some fruit off that same tree!
