WANT LAND? GOT LAND? Are you a farmer looking for land? Are you a landowner looking for farmers? We want you!
Join us for a workshop on the nuts and bolts of land linking. We’ll network, learn about land access, leases and licenses, and the B.C. Land Matching Program, and hear from our expert panel on topics such as housing, finances, and more!
You just might find a farmer who can turn your vacant field into a productive farm, or a landowner who has the ideal piece of land for you!
Refreshments & snacks provided.
