Date: May 2021

True North Aid was proud to provide Eabametoong First Nation with a pallet and a half of potatoes and other various seeds to plant in the community’s five-acre garden. The farm is run by Rudy Waboose, Eabametoong First Nation member and farmer extraordinaire, who has worked the soil for five years, providing residents with fresh produce at harvest. True North Aid is extremely grateful to Geeries Farm Market in Elora, ON for helping source and ship the seeds to EFN; to Rick Smith, a friend of True North Aid and owner of Canadian Tire in Dawson Creek, B.C. for helping to purchase and ship garden tools, a rototiller and other various equipment to Rudy and his volunteers.
