S.U.F.E. & Our Community

Since August when we stated talking about Stratford Urban Farming Experiment, I've been pleasantly surprised by the amount of support our community has shown.

I want to make a few shout-outs to some of the great recent connections we've made.

Festival City Rotary Club - has donated $100 towards seeds & supplies for the season

House of Blessing - currently building our relationship with them (hope to have some produce to donate in season!)

Slow Food Perth County - has let us rent a stall at the Sunday Market, allowing us to fund-raise by selling bread & talk to more people about our project

Revel Caffe - has let us use the space for meetings & baking Sunday mornings until we found a larger kitchen to use

Simple Fish & Chips (website)- the new kitchen space! Chris is now making the brioche for Simple's Lobster Slider in exchange for the kitchen space Sunday AM before Market

This Saturday March 12, Shawn has offered to donate $1 to SUFE for Seeds for every Lobster Slider sold! So if you are wanting to try it out, this would be a great day!

With access to this larger space we will be able to bake more bread & sell more at market, which will give us more funds for the project!
