Farmship Growers Co-operative

www.farmship.ca | www.facebook.com/pages/farmship-growers-co-operative/222705601203573

This group of local food growers are doing more than just growing local delicious and nutritious food. Their food growing practices are also "restorative" to their lands. Not only are the sustainable but that are actually making the land better! They employ students with learning disabilities on their farm providing a very safe and satisfying environment to further their life skills. They are huge advocates in the Central Island area on the importance of local food and local small business. A lot of their food is also supplied to local small restaurants who serve up delicious and sustainable meals.
