THE STORY:

An Alternative Christmas Gift

This is your opportunity to team up with Mustard Seed Communities to support sustainable agriculture at Jacob’s Ladder in Jamaica.

Founded in 1978, Mustard Seed Communities provides loving and lifelong residential care to children and adults with disabilities; care for children affected by HIV/AIDS, teenage mothers, and marginalized communities throughout Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, and Zimbabwe. Sustainable Agriculture is just one aspect of this work, which also includes nutrition, education, and outreach programs.
