The Farm Team applies the Commons vision to protect the agricultural potential of the Commons, coordinating the agricultural initiatives presented in our three phase agricultural plan for the Agricultural Land Commission.

2. Seek out and collect local organic enhancements for the soil.
3. Support the allotment gardeners in their organic food production.
4. Buiild and utilize a seed bank specific to Gabriola.
5. Market produce at market price to cover Farm Team expenses and support the Commons.
6. Produce food that can be shared at Commons events, like the workbee soups.
7. Offer produce, by donation, to Commons volunteers.
