Hey there, time traveller!

I hope your new year has started off well and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during these very challenging times.

As we slowly make our way into the spring in Manitoba, I am looking for new opportunities to engage with folks in Burrows. I am very excited to share that my office wants to work in association with you, the constituents, to create new community supported agriculture projects in our neighbourhood.

CSA programs are a way that we can learn to tread lighter on the earth, source food that is convenient and affordable, and build relationships within our community. Through CSA projects, community members learn about the land where their food is being grown and receive education on how to sustain their own small plot.

Through CSA projects, we create food that travels shorter distances rather than thousands of miles. These projects significantly reduce harmful emissions from transportation, and reduce one-time-use packaging. CSA projects often become a way of life for folks, and they are empowered to share this knowledge with others in their life.

My office is currently looking to collaborate with folks who have experience and interest in CSA projects and gardening, so that we can work in community collaboration to increase sustainability in Burrows.

We are excited to learn from folks who have engaged in CSA projects, and welcome people who have no experience but high interest in this endeavour.

We are looking forward to working in association with and learning from schools, community centres, and community-based organizations. We are also welcoming support from various local businesses who are able to contribute to this project and support ongoing endeavours.

We look forward to the willingness of everyone to knowledge share with one another about agriculture and the environment, while enjoying delicious locally produced foods in our community of Burrows.

Reach out to us by email at or phone 204-415-7621.
