$84,000 - June 25, 2008

By August 2009, more than 270 accounts had been created on the new FarmLink website, with over 100 farm seekers identified and 59 farms interested in finding farmers.

Devoted to conserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Kawartha bioregion, the Kawartha Heritage Conservancy helps link new farmers with land from established or unused farms.The two-phased project emphasizes partnership building among agricultural groups in the Eastern Greenbelt and tackles the challenges facing farmers in that area, such as access to new land and short-term tenancy agreements. The project now includes the FarmLink Program, which connects new farmers with available agricultural land through long-term leases with landowners.
