It was a big day on Tuesday in Mossbank for the Farm It Forward group. They raise funds for their community so residents in their area can apply for money when they're hosting an event or program.
Parrish & Heimbecker Moose Jaw is a major part of the partnership and General Manager Kerry Olson says the group's goals fall in place with their objectives as a company.
"Being a family corporation ,with the initial roots on the Parrish and Heimbecker side of it, we need to get out in the communities and be a part of their establishments and roots that include families and farm initiatives to make the country grow with family behind it."
Farm It Forward is made up of a group of farmers that planted some crops on donated land and sold their harvest to P&H to be able to fund their project. For their inaugural year, they were able to receive a cheque for just over $22,000.
Farm It Forward Chair Kiall Jennett feels their group could provide more for Mossbank residents by donating time and resources.
"We've had a lot of fundraisers for other things here and there was a lot of just writing cheques and this is one where people just (donate) their time."
Jennett says the whole operation wasn't supposed to start until next year but they had some excited members who donated the land right away and they planted their crop three weeks later.
