The Agricultural Industry .. What is the Future?
Innovative, economically viable and ecologically sustainable farming and food production enterprises that support our local food system are critical to the future viability of the agriculture industry. However, as a profession, agriculture is being marginalized. We are in danger of losing the next generation of agricultural leaders.
Join us to learn about the challenges and opportunities and how we can encourage and support new farmers, post-production entrepreneurs, and food system leaders in Metro Vancouver.
