In June 2017, we successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign to create a food forest shelter belt. Many of our 800 trees were adopted through this campaign. We have the following trees/shrubs still available for adoption: Haskap, Gooseberry, Currant, Saskatoon, Canada Buffaloberry, Seabuckthorn, Lilac, and Manitoba Maple. Each tree can be adopted for $25 and is tagged with a hand written copper tree tag and a photograph of the tree is sent to the sponsor. The adoptions help us offset the cost of planting and caring for the trees over their lifespan.
E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org to adopt your tree.
The trees form part of a three row shelter belt to reduce soil erosion, provide habitat for resident wildlife, and berries and fruit for our members. The shelter belt was designed and planted in consultation with the Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society. Students from SAIT also assisted with this project by creating an elevation map of our four acre garden, which helps us with long-term planning and understanding the countours of the land with percision.
