Close Collaboration Helps Ensure Success
The St. Francis Herb Farm team is working in close collaboration with community stakeholders, neighbours and construction partners from Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd. and Zuracon Inc. Farm Credit Canada is financing the project, as the team works closely with SPH Engineering Inc. who assisted with design along with the Township of Madawaska Valley and the County of Renfrew.
“The township, consultants, engineers, public agencies, construction partners and the St. Francis Herb Farm team members have been working hand in hand to meet aggressive timelines with a diverse set of challenges during this unique time for manufacturing in Canada,” added Rivett-Carnac.
Prior to the start of construction, the members of the St. Francis Herb Farm family conducted community outreach efforts, with near-in neighbours with door to door visits to provide updates about plans and to offer thanks for ongoing support during the construction process.
To mark the new site build occasion, in the Fall of 2020, the company held an employee event (socially distanced and following all safety protocols) to kick off this exciting time for St. Francis Herb Farm. The special day included a ceremonial sod turning event and dedication of a time capsule filled with historical mementos from the company’s years of history and community involvement.
