farm staff: Community gardener Marwan Iskander says when he first arrived from Jordan that he just wanted to do a little gardening at the farm, but it turned into so much more, according to CTV. Then I discovered that there's more to it, Iskander says. Staff and volunteers say they always knew they might lose their two acres of land to the expansion of the Halifax infirmary.
