Madrona Farm deadline approaching

Madrona Farm, an organic family-owned farm in Saanich, is looking for money in all shapes and sizes to meet its second cash instalment at the end of July. The farm was owned by the family but not all of them wanted to go on farming. For the past year Farmer Dave, the son of one of the owners, has been trying to raise enough money for The Land Conservancy to buy it and conserve it permanently for farming. He managed the first deadline but the second is higher and fast approaching. It’s in an area that is both too expensive to buy land in and under hot demand by developers (check out the density of their neighborhood). They’ll take anything from $1 up, or if you’re in the area you can join a bicycle tour of local farms this weekend. Let’s help ’em out, eh?
