We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at land@youngagrarians.org to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.

ABOUT THE LAND

This land opportunity is located in the community of Creston, a town of just over 5000 located in the Creston Valley south of Kootenay Lake and just north of the border. The property boasts several acres of cultivable land on fertile soil. Two years ago, the area previously had a crop of garlic.

Some of the land has been converted into a market garden already with lots of free space, while other areas would need a few stumps pulled, and some fencing, to be used for cultivation.

Garden bed

The land is just south of downtown Creston, across the Goat River, just off Highway 21. The land has some tree coverage and rich, fertile soil.

Open land

The land is currently farmed organically, with some vegetables, and berry bushes being harvested. The flat area is currently planted with fall rye to be tilled under in early spring adding nutrients to the soil.
