This story is the first of four stories this month about CRWRC's work in agriculture - a key aspect of CRWRC's work in community development. Recently CRWRC learned that its proposal for $1.1M of funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) was turned down; this funding was a crucial part of CRWRC's budget each year. CRWRC's community development programs - which include agricultural development - could be adversely affected now and in the future. Help communities reap the benefits of CRWRC's programs, now and in the years to come.
