Agriculture policy release

Sustainable Campbell River to release agriculture plan and strategy background report March 16

Sustainable Campbell River to release agriculture plan and strategy background report March 16.

Members of the public will have an opportunity to review the building blocks of the City’s agriculture plan and strategy March 16 at the Sportsplex.

After months of preparation and input, the City’s agriculture background report is ready for public release. The background report combines multiple sources of information and establishes a base line for this emerging industry. It will be merged into an upcoming Agriculture Opportunities Report. These two documents will be the cornerstones of the City’s Agriculture Plan and Strategy, which is scheduled for completion in early summer.

All members of the community, particularly people interested in improving access to locally grown food and prospective farmers seeking more information on the agricultural industry in Campbell River are encouraged to attend a public open house to review and discuss the background report and the public input received to date. The public open house drop-in will be held at the Sportsplex at 6:30 p.m. on March 16. For more information, visit www.sustainable
