Get your 2014 FarmWatch calendar!

The rest of this article is from FarmWatch, based in Richmond.

FarmWatch Calendar sneak peak

The 12-month calendar is a story in photos, quotes and facts, quite beautiful and impactful. While focused on one farm in Richmond, the photos and story have relevance far beyond.

Buy your own or sponsor a copy that we send to local and provincial politicians, the Richmond Agricultural Advisory Committee and media.

It is a way to remind them all that thousands of tons of demolition waste are still buried in the field on the Finn Road farm. One reason that matters is that Richmond City Council will soon be considering whether or not to increase funding for increased monitoring and protection of farmland.

It is also a way to remind politicians that agricultural land throughout B.C. needs stronger protection.

This message couldn’t come at a more important time, as the provincial government threatens to dismantle the Agricultural Land Reserve and the protective powers of the Agricultural Land Commission.

All donations and proceeds will fund FarmWatch activities such as media outreach, advocacy, public education, and legal costs.
