Donate to Farming Smarter

Farming Smarter exists to drive agriculture innovation at the farm level. As a registered Canadian charity & non-profit association, we depend on grants, sponsorship, self-generated revenue, and donations.   

Here is a wish list benefactors might be able to support: 

  1. Land.  We need land to do our work.  This can come in the form of free long-term leases or land ownership.  
  1. Equipment or Fuel:  Again, with several hundred acres, we would appreciate the free use or donation of agriculture equipment including tractors, combines, GPS, sprayers, mowers, trucks, trailers, ATVs, irrigation, and more.  
  1. Crop inputs.  With several hundred acres of land under management, we would appreciate the contribution of inputs such as seed, fertilizer, pesticides, etc.  
  1. Facilities:  Farming Smarter needs shop and office space, labs, and places to host events.  
  1. Cash.  Cash investments can be targeted in many ways.  It could support a research project, an extension goal, conservation work or a staff position.  
  1. Legacy.  Farming Smarter would benefit from the creation of an Endowment fund.  A sizable investment that could both earn and be drawn from for core operations would help secure and sustain Farming Smarter for the long term. 

Your support could help us do amazing things that benefit you and your community! Call Shelly, (403) 317-0022, and let us know how you want to help.
