Mission Statement (Français)
The Friends of the Central Experimental Farm (FCEF) help to preserve, protect, maintain and enhance the Dominion Arboretum, the Ornamental Gardens, the Merivale Shelterbelt and other public areas of the Farm with the expert guidance of AAFC Arboretum and Ornamental Gardens Staff, for the enjoyment of the public, and to promote the Farm’s historical significance and heritage values.
The FCEF, also known as the Friends of the Farm, is an organization of committed volunteers and supportive members who care about the Farm in Ottawa.
We dedicate over 10,000 volunteer hours annually to the Farm. Some volunteers work in the gardens and others work in the office or at Events, while still others drop in periodically to help on specific projects. We are young and old, skilled and unskilled, from research scientist to garden lover, but we want to make a difference and enjoy doing it!
