Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust was established in 1993 by a group of local farmers and conservationists with an interest in conserving agricultural and wildlife resources in Delta, British Columbia. Today, Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust is a non-profit organization that promotes the preservation of over 1500 hectares of farmland and wildlife habitat on the lower Fraser River delta through co-operative land stewardship with local farmers.
The Trust’s Stewardship Programs integrate research, education, and financial incentives to promote the sustainable use of agricultural land within the lower Fraser River delta by bringing conservationists and farmers together as “Partners in Stewardship.” These programs provide farmers with cost-share funding to establish wildlife habitat and/or invest in long term soil fertility on their farms.
By providing solutions to farmers that are compatible with their crop rotations, Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust’s Stewardship Programs contribute to the long-term viability of local farming operations. This ensures that land will continue to be available for food production and wildlife conservation well into the future.
