Save Lemoine Point Farm – Survey Results – March 2023


Sixteen groups responded to our December 2022 survey which asked for their vision of the Farm’s future. Here’s a summary of what we heard.

  • See the farm continuing to produce quality food for local consumption
  • Engage the public in food production practices, educational programming about regenerative agricultural practices, and agroecology (the application of ecology to agriculture, as in the conservation of soil and water resources, the minimization of
    pollution, and the use of natural fertilizers and pesticides).
  • Consider an Experimental Farm model including research initiatives
  • Adapt existing residential and farm buildings to house offices and educational and research facilities associated with farming
  • Provide public access to the Farm’s agricultural and natural features
  • Engage local post-secondary institutions, Indigenous groups, private enterprise
