Environmental Stewardship Award Nominations

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture and the Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) Program are looking for nominations for our 8th Annual Environmental Stewardship Award. The award showcases the outstanding stewardship efforts of farms and elevates public awareness of sustainable farming practices across the province. The award winner will receive a framed painting of their farm by a local artist as well as a cash prize of $2000. The deadline for receiving applications is midnight on July 8th, 2016.

Do you know of a farm that has adopted new practices or technologies or has undertaken projects to protect soil, water or wildlife habitat? If so, please nominate them!  Award application forms are  available at www.nsfa-fane.ca/EFP or by calling 893-2293. If you need any help with the nomination process or have any questions about the award, EFP staff are available for assistance.

As in past years, applications are accepted from individual farms as well as the nominations.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Bremner at 902- 893-2293.
