Farming Connections

Farm

 

 

Farming Connections is a new initiative of Cowichan Green Community in partnership with the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program that focuses on bringing farmers out of the isolating lifestyle that farming creates. Our goal is to engage ageing farmers by holding a series of six workshops coming in the fall of 2018. These workshops will cover a variety of topics of interest to ageing farmers.
