A BUSHEL BASKET FILLED WITH APPLES,AND ONE BIG CARROT, MEANS THAT TOGETHER WE RAISED $85,000!
THANK YOU, EVERYONE!
After ten months of fundraising, how exciting to say we did it, and how perfect that it was donations from Food and Water First and Green Durham Association that got our drive launched and a donation from the Carrot Cache that took us over the top!
The Carrot Cache is a non-profit organization providing support to small projects in Ontario that aim at a just and sustainable regional food system. Sounds like us! The Carrot Cache donation will go directly towards that portion of our Ag Study dealing with carbon sequestration, sometimes known as carbon farming. That’s right, our landmark Study, now in its final stages of data analysis and due for release in the new year, isn’t only researching the economic potential of the Federal Lands if protected for agriculture, but is also looking into the potential for agri-tourism here, next door to Rouge National Urban Park, and for agricultural research and innovation in the face of climate change.
So here’s A REALLY BIG THANK YOU to all the generous donors, individuals as well as NGOs, who made this important Study possible. Learn more about some of our donors by checking out their profiles on our website.
