The Packet (Clarenville) - - EDITORIAL - CLARENVILLE, NL

The Clarenville Farm and Mar­ket has been voted a fi­nal­ist for a $50,000-grant from the Aviva Com­mu­nity Fund.

The non-profit, sea­sonal ed­u­ca­tional grow­ing farm and ven­dor mar­ket is up against four other projects in the com­mu­nity re­silience cat­e­gory.

Aviva’s judg­ing panel is cur­rently se­lect­ing the grand-prize win­ners with the an­nounce­ment com­ing on Dec. 5.

If it wins, Clarenville Farm and Mar­ket will use the funds to help build a wood-frame struc­ture and wash­room at its site.

The fi­nal­ists were se­lected by on­line vot­ing.

The Aviva Com­mu­nity Fund has been in­vest­ing in char­i­ta­ble com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives across Canada for the past eight years.
