Ann Anderson, Secretary
Educator, Wolfville Community Foundation, Friends of Agriculture
FarmWorks is for me one way of helping preserve what I have grown to love about Nova Scotia. I came to Wolfville, attracted by the warm, community minded people, plus access to the fruits and vegetables of the famed Annapolis Valley.
Always concerned by nutrition and my personal and family’s health and well-being I delighted in the possibility of having access to fresh local produce from farm markets and road side stands.
However, I came to understand that the supply of this fresh produce, local meat, jams, jellies and other foodstuffs is threatened by many factors not the least of which is the lack of farmers.
Agriculture in Nova Scotia is currently unsustainable. Something needs to be done and the beauty of FarmWorks is that through it each of us can do our part by investing in our community.
