You’re invited to a socially-distanced outdoor Land Social at Salt & Harrow Farm in Tsawwassen, B.C.! If you’re curious about what land matching and sharing is all about – or just want to check out what your local farmers are up to – join us for the event.
Be inspired and learn about the incredible farming that can be done on a community farm! Salt & Harrow Farm is a certified organic vegetable farm with ten acres devoted to growing over 50 varieties of vegetables, legumes, fruits, and herbs. In partnership with Young Agrarians, training and mentoring for the next generation of farmers is offered through a Young Farmer Training Program and an intensive on-farm apprenticeship hosted by Salt & Harrow Farm.
We’ll tour the farm, network, and look at the steps to building a successful land sharing relationship. Your regional Land Matcher will share information about how the B.C. Land Matching Program can help you find the perfect farmer for your land – or farmland where you can build your dream farm business.
Land Socials connect farmers and farmland holders, and set them up to receive ongoing support through the B.C. Land Matching Program. Both farmers seeking land and farmland holders thinking about sharing land are encouraged to attend – as well as anyone who loves food, farming, and getting out onto the land.
