Spring update: crowd funding campaign underway!

Posted on by Stewart Fotheringham

It seems so long ago now but at the end of March our greenhouse was totalled by the big N'oreaster that blew through the Maritimes. Another farm down the way lost their greenhouse too and since then a crowd funding campaign has been launched to help our farms rebuild. People have been so generous in making donations large and small. Click here to check out the campaign.

It also caught the attention of the media. We were on the CBC news and the Chronicle Herald. They wanted to spread the word of this good news story that had people coming together in a virtual 'barn raising' to help us out. 

We've had lots of people offer help in either cleaning up or putting up a new structure. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us. It's been a stressful time, but we're getting into the swing of things again and really excited about the upcoming market season! The first outdoor Annapolis Royal market will May 17th and we expect to be at the Thursday Lunenburg market in the first couple of weeks in June.

Happy Spring everyone!
