The BC Ministry of Agriculture is coordinating focus groups to develop their New Entrants to Farming Strategy.
They are currently recruiting for two web-based focus groups:
Are you planning to enter farming or ranching in the next 10 years? (Prospective)
Within the last 10 years, did you start or consider starting a career in farming, but then decide not to continue? (Unrealized)
The total time commitment is 1-3 hours and participants will receive a $75 gift card.
Anyone who would like to take part in online focus groups can contact Malatest toll-free 1-866-247-6465 and refer to the Agriculture Focus Group.
About the Web-Based Focus Groups
This phase of the project will be focused on gaining a better understanding of how individuals choose to enter farming or ranching, and the barriers they may face in the process.
The bulletin-board-style focus groups will take place over three days, where participants will log in at their convenience to participate in a moderated discussion.
