Back on March 23, we launched a pilot project to raise money for a family to receive a CSA share this season. We are about $150 dollars away from making this happen! We’re so close! Because CSA sign ups are well underway, we’d like to pass along the donation soon. As such, donations to this season’s pilot project will close on Friday, May 11. (Donations made after this date, will go towards next season’s program.) If we raise more than $150 before May 11, then the money will go toward an additional share.

This season we are piloting a program to make Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares more available to families with limited incomes.
Monetary donations will be used to assist families in purchasing CSA shares for the season. Through our partnerships with family resource centres, families will have the opportunity to identify their interest in being involved.
For this pilot season, we will be working with The Kids Action Program in Canning and Bayers Westwood Family Resource Centre in Halifax. The family resource centres will choose which CSA farm to purchase from based on delivery routes, schedules, and fit.
The Ecology Action Centre is a registered charity and you will be issued a tax receipt for your donation.
