Name the “Farm Centre” Contest! Win Gift Basket of local goodies!

What’s in a name? Currently, the official name of the “Farm Centre” is “Salt Spring Farm Centre for Food Security.” We’d love a new name and that’s why we are asking the community for help.

Our goal is to develop sustainable, local food production and increase access to local food for all sectors of the community. Who benefits: farmers, value-added food producers, and anyone who values locally grown and produced food!

And you can win an amazing gift basket full of goodies from island producers as well as participants of the Rural Business Accelerator (RBA).

The Contest:

Simply e-mail your Entry here:
