The Westfield Community Growing project planted a field of durum last Thursday, which upon harvest, will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Volunteer, Bert Schussler said the Westfield project was started 20 years ago by Murial and Nellie Luca who donated a quarter-section and challenged Schussler’s brother Al to manage it. Schussler noted that all equipment, fertilizer, fuel, seed, and labour has been donated to get this year’s Foodgrains crop in the ground.
