Almost there! Help us save Madrona Farm!

Madrona Farm is such a jewel inside Saanich South. The importance of this farm, and ones like it, have always been a priority for myself and former MLA David Cubberley. David felt so strongly about saving Madrona Farm that he spearheaded a fundraising campaign last year asking people to donate their $100 carbon rebate cheques. He initiated this campaign with his own generous donation of $10,000.

This camapign was one of many community based initiatives that have been extreamely successful.

As of January 14, 2010, $1,413,000 have been raised, leaving $287,000 to raise by March 15,2010.

Thanks to the overwhelming support from TLC Members, concerned citizens, local businesses and community groups, all with a love for locally grown food, TLC is well on it’s way to seeing Madrona Farm protected forever.

But, there is still work to be done to save this community asset. Please join the hundreds of people who believe in protecting agriculture land for future generations by making your donation to help save Madrona Farm today.
