The Farmlands Trust (Greater Victoria) Society was established in March 2008 to enhance the farming capability of Mt. Newton Valley, rehabilitate the stream ecology of Hagan Creek and create a community trail system.

In the summer of 2009, the members began expanding the geographic, and social scope of the organization to cover all the peoples and lands of Greater Victoria.

As a professional organization, the members declared the next phase of its mandate would emphasize collaboration, farmland management and outreach to meet the community's requirements among the socially disadvantaged/marginalized individuals in our society.

Charitable Status was granted in June 2011 by Canada Revenue Agency. Our FLT Society Charitable Number is 80839 3359 RR0001.
