Watershed funding

Prince Edward Island’s Minister of Communities, Land and Environment Robert Mitchell announced recently that a new funding formula has been approved for Island watershed groups. He says that the new funding formula will ensure fairness and transparency and addresses the yearly concern around funding predictability and stability and allows groups to plan longer term.

Community Schools funding

A new 3-year $125,400 funding agreement with the PEI Association of Community Schools will help bring learning opportunities to Islanders who might not otherwise be able to access them. The agreement will provide stable funding for the association through 2019. More than 2,500 Islanders use programs provided by the PEI Association of Community schools in the fall and winter of every year.

Our lovely farmer offers treats: a bright red pepper, fresh ginger, a
