SORRENTO TRACTOR
Tractor Auction

With the addition of the Sorrento Centre Farm property we are now responsible for maintaining over 30 acres of land, which includes roads, lawns, forest trails and a working farm.

In order to efficiently manage our grounds and farm production, the tractor helps us with mowing, tilling, snow plowing, trench digging and moving large materials.

We successfully raised over $24,000 for our tractor fund during the 2010 and 2011 seasons through generous donations from many of our friends and associates as well as with raffles, a grant and our on-line auction. We are inspired and excited at this tremendous show of support for the Sorrento Centre Farm!

Community Food Action Initiative (CFAI)

CFAI is a collaborative effort between local communities, Interior Health's Community Nutritionists and the Ministry of Health Services. The Sorrento Centre Farm benefited from a $5000 grant toward our tractor fund through the Community Food Action Initiative.

Interior Health has invested $66,783.83 through the Community Food Action Initiative (CFAI) to support community food security projects in 16 communities throughout the region. The initiative is part of a province-wide strategy to promote food security programs and to encourage British Columbians to make healthy food choices.

Vision

The Sorrento Centre Farm will help people deepen and strengthen their experience of God being present in their lives and in their world.

The Sorrento Centre Farm seeks to create a just relationship between people and Earth by growing, sharing and learning about food, and by sharing the abundance with those most in need
