In 2013, Salt Spring Coffee donated $15,000 to The Farm through a membership in 1% for the Planet. We quickly purchased a walk-behind tractor with several implement attachments and a two-door produce cooler. Both were sorely needed at The Farm. Previously, we relied on a tractor shared with several other farmers. Finally having our own tractor, boosted productivity and directly increased the amount of food we can grow every year.
Salt Spring Coffee staff spent the summer regularly volunteering at The Farm. They are hard working volunteers!
