At the heart of Norquay, Saskatchewan, a transformative initiative known as the "Growing Forward" project is sowing the seeds of positive change, uniting the community through agriculture.
Lindgren Farms, in partnership with local businesses, is proud to launch this community-driven endeavor that aims to enrich the lives of Norquay's residents by utilizing a portion of the farm's grain proceeds to fund essential local initiatives. The mission behind Growing Forward is to foster a sustainable cycle of growth and giving, making a profound and lasting impact on the lives of Norquay's residents for generations to come.
Bayer, BASF, Corteva, Clayton Air Service, Prairie Soil Services, and Pattison Ag have enthusiastically rallied behind the initiative which contributes to crucial community programs. We are excited to announce five $1000 scholarships available to surrounding communities. A fence to surround the Norquay school ground as well as a greenhouse for the school are also planned. Growing Forward has already started sowing the seeds of generosity that will yield a bountiful harvest of opportunities for Norquay. By nurturing these fundamental aspects, Growing Forward seeks to build a stronger and more vibrant community, creating a legacy of positive change.
"Our community has always been the backbone of Lindgren Farms, and Growing Forward is our way of giving back," says Jennifer Lindgren, of Lindgren Farms and Lindgren Seeds. "Through this joint effort, we aim to create a positive impact on the lives of our fellow community members."
The Growing Forward project is a testament to the power of collaboration, where businesses, community members, and agriculture unite for a shared vision of a better future. As we continue on this journey, we are excited to witness the transformative impact that Growing Forward will have on Norquay's community and beyond.
