Fernwood NRG board and staff are deeply saddened to learn of Dave Kesson’s passing. A kind and generous person who cared deeply about creating a just and sustainable community, Dave was a devoted volunteer in Fernwood over the past twenty or more years. He was on the Board of Directors of Fernwood NRG when we purchased the Cornerstone Building in 2005, and he worked on the demolition and construction crew putting the building back together. This past spring, he was on the crew that built the toolshed at Spring Ridge Common. At the suggestion of Dave’s family, Fernwood NRG has established a fund to take donations in support of our urban agriculture initiatives in Fernwood.
Donations can be made in person at the Fernwood Community Centre (1240 Gladstone Avenue) or online through CanadaHelps (Select The Dave Kesson Urban Agriculture Fund in the drop down menu).
