Today we picked up our Clipper AGM 224 seed cleaner from Seedburo Equipment Company that will go into our mobile seed cleaning trailer. Discovery Organics, Ltd took delivery for us and General Manager Damien Bryan showed off his forklift skills loading the Clipper into the trailer.
After that is was back to the Vancouver Food Pedalers Cooperative to store the trailer – an epic failure! The weight of the trailer and the moisture in the ground made it impossible to get back into place – despite a desperate and concerted effort.
But, The Sharing Farm to the rescue! We pulled the trailer out to Richmond to store until we finish up a few pieces to ready it for use. We still need to build a platform for the seed cleaner, install a power cord, and then move it into place. Once we get it operational we’ll start doing some training videos. We still have more seed cleaning equipment to add as well!
We cannot wait to get this trailer into use for BC seed growers!
