Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) is elated to announce the Grow Stronger initiative with its first partner, Topsy Farms and various partners to help support Canadians at this time.
Since 1972, Topsy Farms has been operating and raising sheep on Amherst Island. The farm mainly produces 100% Canadian Wool products, natural products and offers leisure activities for visitors to enjoy. This is Kubota Canada’s first collaboration with Topsy Farms.
To boost morale and assist with the food supply during World War I and World War II, Victory Gardens were grown at private residences and at public parks by people of all ages. This allowed everyone to be farmers and contribute in a positive way. The Victory Gardens contained various vegetables, crops, fruit and herbs that were tended to by communities for the greater good and to help provide a sense of purpose.
For Kubota, all Canadians can be farmers. Kubota plans to continue supporting communities across Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic through a positive and educational social awareness campaign. Promoting the key benefits of victory gardening from a social distance and helping Canadians grow stronger.
“Kubota’s commitment to our Canadian community drives us to do more for them and to make a positive impact. That is why we are excited about the #GrowStronger project because it supports our communities – all while empowering people to do more. This is Canada’s opportunity to grow: Grow food, grow appreciation and grow stronger. It also helps shed light on the values of our farming community and how it relates to us all. We’re all in this together as a country, and we can grow stronger as one, even if we’re apart,” said Yannick Montagano, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kubota Canada Ltd.
