CFI’s AGM and Farm Day

by Estelle Drisdelle on August 31, 2015

 

You're invited!
CFI's Annual General Meeting
September 12, 2015  10am - 3pm  Whaelghinbran Farm

 

Pemban Kitchen Garden 2015

The past year has seen many new developments at CFI. We are proud to announce we have crossed the 1.5 million trees planted mark in Pemba! Our partners at Community Forests Pemba entered the next phase of our five-year program with the European Union, which included hiring new staff as projects expand and new communities participate. In Canada, we planted the Restoration Orchard and will soon open several kilometres of recreational trails through the woods at Whaelghinbran Farm. Across both organizations, we engaged in forming and formalizing a shared Strategic Plan, ensuring that we continue to move in the same direction in equal partnership.

It's time to reflect, plan, and celebrate, and we would love for you to join us.
