NF2 50/50 Benefit Dinner

After arriving home from Kenya in February 2013 I have been considering ways that I can continue to support the work of the womans groups from my home farm and community in Nova Scotia.  My hope is that here in Nova Scotia we can create a strategy to have a long term continuous stream of funds to carry out the work of FHF. I am really excited annouce that NF2 (No Farms No Food) has choosen Farmers Helping Farmers for their 50/50 benefit fundraising event. 

The event raises funds in support of sustainable agriculture and land preservation locally and afar.
It is the 3rd Annual "You Don't Know What You've Got 'Til It's Gone" benefit dinner at the Old Orchard Inn

Thursday, December 5th at 6 p.m. 

It's going to be a wonderful evening to kick-off the Holiday Season in a fun & meaningful way. We’ll once again be able to enjoy a bounty of local foods including a whole spit-roasted pig from Meadowbrook Farms. And we look forward to tasting a typical vegetarian Kenyan dish, too. Musical performances will keep us entertained and we can finish, or perhaps begin, our Christmas shopping before or during dinner with the always-diverse silent and live auctions. 

The evening's proceeds will be split 50/50 between the Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust and Farmers Helping Farmers (to help with the final year of their three-year horticulture project working with women’s groups in the Kenyan communities of Marega and Kiirua). 

Tickets are now available.  Please share with your Nova Scotia Friends, or come join us from PEI.  For more information visit the facebook page: OR you can email me:
