What we are doing?

What is Porziuncola?

Teaching local men and women how to create a sustainable self sufficient farm by growing local organic produce. We are farming:

  • honey
  • cassava
  • sorrel
  • scotch bonnet
  • okras
  • bananas
  • pumpkins

The word "Porziuncola" is an Italian word that means "a small portion of land."  Deeply tied to Catholic roots, the Porziuncola chapel is known to be where St. Francis found his vocation.

​Pronounced Por-zi-un-cola.
