Leave a comment

On Sunday, July 26th, S.O.I.L. Coordinator Nicole Arsenault, with Leslie Savoie from the Farmers’ Market Community Connectors project (a project connecting immigrant communities to farming communities), as well as help from the YMCA, teamed up to organize a farm tour for new immigrants who are interested in agriculture. They toured 3 farms in the Windsor, Nova Scotia area. Participants were actively engaged and many questions were answered!

We also got some great photos from the tour, check them out!
