Funds to follow my dream!

My dream of becoming an organic farmer is coming true!

In February,  a friend and I wrote a proposal to take over unit #3 at Haliburton Community Organic Farms next January.   To be a grower there is a dream I have had since visiting the farm in 2010 with UVIC. 

In order to pay for the amazing infrastructure on the ~0.86 acre site I am asking for some help from my friends, family and community.    Start up costs for the big greenhouse, the irrigation system, perennials, seeds and tools comes to about $10,000.   I have started sourcing  what I need and it is getting expensive!!  I'm concerned as to how to cover the cost of living next year as I am just getting on my feet.  My whole heart and soul are going into this (and possibly all the money I have).  Community supported, small-scale, ecologically sustainable farming is a passion of mine and I believe it's our future.   Our delicious future!

Please check out the link above.  It's a wonderful place and we need more farms like this. 
Your support will help me grow healthy delicious food and to steward a lovely spot.    May it be of benefit to all.
In love and appreciation,
Kristina
