In November, Lana Popham, the Minister of Agriculture and Adam Olsen our MLA paid our island a visit to congratulate us on the award of $100,000 grant from the province’s Rural Dividend Program. They toured the Farm Land Trust’s Burgoyne Valley Community Farm, and the Root site. The day was finished off with a ‘round table “discussion on farming issues. Thank you Lana Popham and Adam Olsen.

All these events and happenings were fueled by that underground resource called volunteers. Thank you all for your efforts this year in assisting us with our goals.
