The farmers here care deeply about balancing earning a living with caring for the land, natural resources, and the wide diversity of life in the area. Stewart creek runs through the farmland, and is home to salmon, a wide array of birds, amphibians, and occasionally splashing, laughing children and sweaty farmers.
Yarrow Ecovillage Community Farm has been given the opportunity to expand the amount of land in production through several grants: Stoneyfield Canada’s “Profit For the Planet” Grant, Vancity’s Community Projects Grant ("Support for this project does not necessarily imply Vancity's endorsement of the findings or contents of this report."), and sponsored in part by Southern Drip Irrigation in Chilliwack, BC, and a big thanks to the great people at Peters Well Drilling. These grants/sponsors will enable us to expand into the 16 acres of the south field (south of Stewart creek) by bringing electricity and city water, installing irrigation, and digging a well.
