What would we do with $10,000?

The Langford Conservancy applied for a $10,000 grant called Pioneer+TO from Toronto+Acumen with a goal of providing a healthier society and a better standard of living.  There were over a hundred applicants, and we made it to the top three!  So what would we do with $10,000?  We would protect farmland by working with owners and placing conservation easements on their land, by purchasing farmland through the sale of community bonds, providing long-tern leases to organic farmers, and by helping to develop an organic farmers’ co-operative.

We find out if we are successful in at the annual Dignity in Focus gala on October 24, 2013.  We will let you know the results!
