Well maybe not down on the farm but things are certainly growing! After a delayed start and some unusual pest problems the plants are really taking off. We had are first ‘harvest’ last night…7 big radishes! It is terrific  to see how the individual plots are thriving and you feel the excitement of the gardeners as they come down and discover something else coming up or blossoming in their plot.

We want to extend our sincerest appreciation to Linda Best of Friends of N.S. Agriculture and all her efforts in the April Flavours food and fundraising event. Linda has been a great supporter of the ACF and this year we received a very generous donation of $1000.00 from April Flavours! Again our thanks to Linda and all of those who made this such a successful event.

We are also excited to welcome our two Katimivik volunteers ! We will have further introductions in the days ahead. The volunteers will be working at both the Irving Centre and the ACF for the next six months so we are very grateful for this much needed assistance.

We are continuing our work sessions on the farm portion of the garden every Wednesday evenings from 6 – 8 and Sunday mornings from 10 – 12. Of course if you are down at the garden we encourage weeding and watering at anytime!
