Through Grow Hope Saskatchewan, you can become a farmer by sponsoring an acre of farmland in rural Saskatchewan. Funds raised help Development and Peace support people around the world with emergency food supplies and long-term food security.
The first Saskatchewan project is a unique ecumenical partnership with the Saskatoon Catholic Diocese and the Mennonite Central Committee of Saskatchewan.
Generous farmers in the Saskatoon area have donated land and have agreed to grow a crop. It costs, on average, $300 per acre to grow the crop – covering the cost of things like seed, fuel and other inputs.
At the end of the growing season, they will sell. The Government of Canada matches contributions between 3:1 and 4:1 on average, creating up to $400,000 of revenue on 160 acres. What this means is that your generous donation of $300, for example, will yield $2500 to bring some of the world’s most vulnerable people their daily need of food. You can be a part of Grow hope by sponsoring a partial acre, full acre or more. Become a farmer today!
Please sponsor a full acre at $300, a half-acre at $150.00, a quarter-acre at $75.00 or make any other gift. You can make a one-time donation or make monthly recurring gift payments. Thank you for helping to feed those that live in hunger.
