When it came time for Ken and Debbie Rubin to consider the future of their organic farmland, which looks up at the Eardley Escarpment, near Luskville, they decided its conservation value was high and to donate the property as an “ecological gift.”
The nearly 15-hectare section of land adjacent to the Gatineau Park, which they owned for forty-four years, has been donated to ACRE Land Trust.
It will become known as “Place Eco Rubin” and be held in perpetuity as part of Quebec’s conservation-protected areas.
The annual general meeting of Action Chelsea for Respect of the Environment (ACRE) is scheduled for Tuesday, March 30th at 7:30 PM.
