Beginner Farmer Report


With the support of Renaissance, local organization ACORN brought together over 160 Farmers from the Maritimes and beyond for an amazing event. On behalf of the board of Renaissance, we’d like to congratulate ACORN on a great success providing much needed support to rural economic development in our region!

Here is their official report to Renaissance Sackville.
