We cannot expand our garden area without deer protection. Partial funding is available for Environmental Farm Plan approved projects completed by 31 December 2008. Our fencing plan has been approved.


Enclose the area from the ditch just behind the yellow house and greenhouse on the south, to the road on the north, between the east and west property lines. Include five vehicle gates to provide access to the road and to farm roads. Include smaller pedestrian gates as needed.

Alternatively, enclose the area inside our loop road that runs from one driveway, behind the white house and woodshed, to the other driveway, and the north field next to Meg Buckley. Include one vehicle gate for each of the two fenced areas, and smaller pedestrian gates as needed. Minimize fencing and maximize access by using the White House and woodshed (and possibly existing garden area) in the fence line.

Goal or deliverable

Four+ acres of deer-fenced area that we can begin to turn into gardens.

Final Accounting

  • Cash outlay
    • $6,562.42 on materials (84.6% of original budget)
    • less $4,130.36 Environmental Farm Plan grant
    • $2,432.06 net cash outlay from restricted funds (capital account)
  • Labour
    • 521 hours (84.6% of original budget)
  • Equipment Use
    • Tractor: 32 hours
    • Dodge pickup: 2 hours
    • 16' flatbed trailer: 2 hours
    Equipment use was not in original budget, but was compensated in the grant proceeds.
  • Class A shares:
    • none allocated, all cash outlay was from EcoReality capital account
  • Class B shares at 15 per hour:
    • 180 to Susie Anne Bartsch
    • 1,215 to James Cowan
    • 1,800 to Rudy Siegers
    • 180 to Jan Slakov
    • 1,965 to Jan Steinman (labour)
    • 540 to Jan Steinman (equipment time)
    Class B shares divided by 15 do not equal actual labour because compensated labour (WWOOFers) was not included.
