$4,890 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 21 months
We are raising money to get a much needed walk behind tractor for Emma's Acres-our agricultural social enterprise located in Mission British Columbia Canada. Emma's Acres is a project that works with offenders and victims and increases local food security. Here is the link to the CBC National documentary on Emma's Acres which aired in October 2016.
Emma's Acres is a 8 acre small lot farm  that grows non spray, non GMO vegetables,  fruits and herbs that are sold at the Mission City Farmers Market, on site and to local restaurants and grocery stores.  Produce is also donated to local non profits and  individuals in need. Proceeds from Emma's Acres goes towards our work with people impacted by the criminal justice system. 

The L.I.N.C. Society started Emma's Acres three years ago from scratch on land we lease from the District of Mission.  We have had to clear the land, build the infrastructure, get electricity and drip irrigation in and increase the PH levels in the soil.   Alot of the work we do by hand. The walk behind tractor will help with row building etc and make things a lot faster.

Hello everyone,
Today we received a generous donation from Mike and Judy Campbell of Campbell's Gold towards our tractor fund. The sky has cleared up here. It is nice and hot. We have lots of tomatoes, peppers, squash and cucumbers. Here is a picture I can not remember if I posted it of one of our Atlanta Dill Pumpkins. By the time it is fully grown, this baby will be over 300 pounds. We will be donating it to the District of Mission. Please consider donating to our fund to get a much needed walk behind tractor for Emma's Acres. Thx

I can not remember if I shared this CBC blog with everyone.
Emma's Acres is mentioned in it as an example of an innovative prisoner rehabilitation programme.

Good morning. The sky is still cloudy with smoke from the interior. We had visitors yesterday from National Headquarters and Regional Headquarters (Pacific Region) of the Correctional Service of Canada who came to Emma's Acres to work in the fields and the greenhouse. That was very cool. Got some nice pictures of vegetables to post including this 50 pound and growing pumpkin from our manure pile. Please consider donating to our fund to get a much needed walk behind tractor for Emma's Acres. Thx
A big pumpkin.
