Summer 2012 Update
Boundary agriculture has seen a busy and productive summer; the Agricultural Society is gearing up for an even busier autumn! Here are some of the projects that we’re working on or getting developed in the upcoming few months:
Our mobile meat processing unit is currently under construction, and will be delivered and operation before the end of the year! We’ve had an enormous amount of help from countless local people, Community Futures, the Meat Transition Assistance Program, Southern Interior Development Trust, and Western Economic Diversification. If you’re interested in using the unit, please get in touch with us to prepare for the unit being operational!
Our Grand Forks community garden is growing rapidly, and the grounds are looking fantastic. Lorraine has done a fantastic job of helping shepherd the community garden to the healthy state it’s in currently.
This autumn will see us embark in a new and exciting project for us: the agricultural tool share. We need to secure some funding to help us get this project off the ground, but this project would see the availability of farming equipment for small farmers across the boundary. We dream of having available everything from hand tools to tractor implements and maybe even a community combine. Please let us know if you want to help create this community asset!
