Maplewood Farm is successful due to the countless hours of donated time by volunteers and funding from our community. It takes a community to support your community farm, and now we need your help!
Community Infrastructure Grant
Late last year, as part of its Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund, the Federal government provided funding to help the District rehabilitate Maplewood Farm. The District has generously matched that grant, and will use the funds to make much needed upgrades to the farm, including:
Construction of a heated, enclosed multi-purpose area (which will be added to the existing Visitor’s Centre Building)
- Construction of six new covered viewing shelters by the paddocks
- Replacement of existing washroom facilities;
- Creation of interpretive signage.
A condition of the grant contract requires Maplewood Farm to raise $25,000 in cash or in-kind donations.
You can donate in one of 2 ways:
In-person at Maplewood Farm Tuesday-Sunday
Call 604-985-FARM Tuesday- Friday 10:00AM – 4:00PM

Here’s How to Get Started
The first step in the donation process is to review the list of options, and decide which area interests you. You can contact Maplewood Farm staff to discuss further. Staff will work with you to determine where and how best to apply your generous donation.
If you decide to proceed, you will be asked to provide your donation via cheque or credit card. Along with your application form, the Parks Department will have your donation processed and Maplewood Farm will issue you a tax receipt for donations over $10.
All donations will entitle the donor to good farm karma. When your donation is processed, you’ll receive a thank you card from the District of North Vancouver and one free farm admission!
We are very open to any and all other suggestions or ideas to help us meet our goal!
