Firefighters might not be the only ones with sexy calendars.

A Squamish sustainable food advocacy group is stripping down in support of a community farm.

The Squamish Climate Action Network, or CAN, has launched an Indiegogo campaign for a calendar featuring nude Squamish farmers in hopes of raising money for the farm.

Michalina Hunter, the president of CAN, said she got the idea from a calendar she bought in 2015.

“The nude farming calendar I bought on Indiegogo raised $35,000 for two women to put a downpayment on farm property,” said Hunter in a news release.

“I thought it was such a great idea. How amazing would it be if we could raise that much for a community farm in Squamish?”

CAN is hoping to start with a community farm, then adding components over the years such as a food hub, community garden, covered workshop space and food forest.

They have not solidified a location for the community farm, but are exploring different options.

In ideal circumstances, the group says, they would own the piece of land, but they’re also open to a long-term lease or a memorandum of understanding.
