Guelph, ON-Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is donating $1.5 million to 94 community groups across Canada to support their rural projects.

On October 28th, the FCC AgriSpirit Fund made sure to support rural areas by giving each community group between $5,000 to $25,000 so that they can purchase better equipment and upgrade their various facilities.

These groups included Camp Kawartha who was given $25,000 to build a new nurse’s station at the environmental education camp. As well as the Lake of Bays Township Public Library who was given $5,700 to develop an aquaponics system for the library that will allow for growing fresh greens and herbs year-round.

The FCC Fund has supported 1,263 projects over the past 16 years and has invested more than $15 million.
