Join us at Amazing Discoveries for an opportunity to learn self-sufficient farming & homesteading. The messages have been given for over 130 years that we must get out of the cities! We are so close to the final events and the Lord has warned us ahead of time to prepare.

If you are eager to learn and want a good understanding of the country-living message join us! 

No one can succeed in agriculture or gardening without attention to the laws involved. The special needs of every variety of plant must be studied. Different varieties require different soil and cultivation, and compliance with the laws governing each is the condition of success. The attention required in transplanting, that not even a root fiber shall be crowded or misplaced, the care of the young plants, the pruning and watering, the shielding from frost at night and sun by day, keeping out weeds, disease, and insect pests, the training and arranging, not only teach important lessons concerning the development of character, but the work itself is a means of development. In cultivating carefulness, patience, attention to detail, obedience to law, it imparts a most essential training. - Ellen White, AH 142.3
We offer a flexible start and end date, depending on what specifically you would like to learn.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, we have a no pet policy. There are lots of farm animals already on-site including dogs, so to simplify and protect the animals we do not allow other pets. 
What Kind of clothing should I bring?
Mud/winter boots, winter/rain coat and workwear are what you'll need. You will also want to have layers as we do get colder weather here so a warm winter coat and base layers are needed. Nothing above the knee, sleeveless or revealing is allowed. 
Do you have wifi?
Yes, we do have WIFI. We do not have other cellphone providers however, so to stay in contact with your family you'll want a phone that allows for "WIFI calling". Otherwise you can use a land-line.
