“The Upton Farm Preservation network is pleased to announce that its goal has been reached for the most part.
After five years of work and negotiations, 138 acres are now in the ownership of Upton Farm Trust Inc. which is being managed by a board of trustees, as set out in the agreements and by-laws as posted here.
The Board will initiate long-term planning based on a Vision Plan endorsed by supporters of UFPN, Canada Lands Corporation, The Provincial Government and the City of Charlottetown. The original plan was posted on our site a very long time ago, and has now been incorporated into the by-laws.
The stewardship of the land rests in the hands of a volunteer board of trustees.
The members are: Kirsten Connor, President, Parker Grimmer, Beth Hoar, Heidi Hyndman, Dr. Douglas Sobey, Cheryl Stead and Barbara Trainor and Deputy Ministers Michael Mayne and John MacQuarrie.
Thanks to one expressed vision, perseverance and the loyal and hard work of the working group of UFPN, Dianne Bradley, Jan Rankin Collie, Heidi Hyndman, Kathy Kennedy,Laurie McBurney, Katherine McQuaid, Cheryl Stead, chaired by Kirsten Connor, and all the supporters, that gathered around that vision, all Islanders are today invited to share in celebrating this historic gift and to enjoy, relish and protect it in perpetuity.”
