Finally harvest: The Ponoka Community Growing Project, with the proceeds going to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, was finally able to harvest its canola crop on Oct. 23 from the land located north of Ponoka and rented from the Harkema family. After being delayed twice by weather, 12 combines along with two tractors with grain haulers and four super-B trucks carried away 194 tonnes of No. 1 canola with an average moisture of 9.5 per cent. In the end, the harvest was worth close to $80,500 which will be matched at four to one by the federal government. Organizer Peter Doornenbal also thanked everyone for all of their donations and support to make this a success. Photo by Jordie Dwyer
