Time out from farming to deal with a Community Forest issue.

The Eastport Community Forest Association recently came into being as a result of a key document arriving regarding governments intentions towards our communities right to have a say in the management of our adjacent natural resources. You can find the document at NL Outport Life.  It focuses on a few of the issues that had been outstanding and keeping our local process in limbo for the past year or so.

While not perfect, it goes a long way towards enabling communities along the coast of Newfoundland to have more of a say in how their future will unfold. So it's a good thing, and one which all involved should be proud to be a part of.

Sometimes this organic farmer is an activist too. Gotta fight the good fight after all.
