Did you know Nova Scotia is the most food insecure province in Canada?
Over 15% of Nova Scotia’s households experience food insecurity on an annual basis. Having enough, nourishing food is critical to all aspects of being able to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
We are committed to feeding our community and this includes those who may not be able to access our vegetables due to barriers including financial and transportation limitations.
How can you contribute to helping ensure more members of our community have access to vegetables?
By becoming one of our Farm Friends!
Invest in vegetables for you and your community while supporting our farm with our new Farm Friend Cards!
For every $100 you invest you get $80 loaded on a shiny Soil Mates Farm Friend card. Bring this card with you to the market and no need to remember your cash. Farm Friends Cards can only be used at the in-person market. Your card is reloadable and the funds do not expire. We aren’t charged service fees for transactions using these cards so spend as much or as little at a time as you like!
The other $25 will go into a fund which will be used to load more shiny Soil Mates Farm Friend cards and made available to members of our community who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access our vegetables. We are working with SchoolsPlus to connect with local families who are experiencing food insecurity.
We also gladly accept direct cash donations to this fund in any denomination but are unfortunately unable to issue charitable tax receipts.
