"We've Reached our Goal for the Land Purchase!"

Hello Chelsea Neighbours,

We are very happy to let you know that we have met our fundraising goal to ensure the community purchase of the 57-acre Johannsen property.

We are grateful to all the neighbours across Chelsea who helped make this happen, in record time! We live in an amazing community.

We look forward to closing our deal by the end of February. This land will be protected in perpetuity, thanks to you all.
