Thanks to a four-year, $240,900 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Everdale Organic Farm and Environment Learning Centre will be hiring a new fund development and communications manager.
Officials there believe that will further strengthen the organization’s ability to develop and offer even more unique programs for people across the province.
“We look forward to broadening the impact of the exemplary programs that Everdale is offering, both in terms of where we can offer them and how often we can offer them,” said Lynn Bishop, program manager.
Everdale is a non-profit charitable environmental learning centre and organic farm. Its mandate is to promote the benefits of local food, organic farming, and sustainable living.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the government of Ontario that provides grants to eligible charitable and not-for-profit organizations.
