We are very excited to announce that we are one of the finalists in the Aviva Community Fund!
The Farm & Market wants to offer a very special thanks to everyone who supported our idea by voting, sharing, and expressing your thoughts on Phase Two of the Farm & Market. The grand prize winners will be announced on December 5th!
There are 36 finalists across Canada who have made it to this level of the competition; each finalist has developed a unique idea that will bring about positive change in their respective communities. Our own idea, Phase Two of the Farm & Market, will include a permanent wooden structure, roofing over our performance deck (for those challenging weather days here in Newfoundland), and a washroom facility on the premises. We are confident that with these changes we would be able to enact new community initiatives, healthy living educational programs, and even more fun-filled days at the Farm & Market! To say that we are excited about the potential of next year's growth is an understatement.
With successful funding we will be able to expand the Farm & Market in Clarenville with these permanent improvements prior to the 2018 market season beginning in June.
