RIDESHARE: If you are coming to Terrace from away, and need a ride OR can offer someone a ride, please post in the Facebook event page.

 

We aim:

  • To connect farmers operating in the Skeena and Bulkley regions to one another;
  • To connect established farmers with experience and knowledge with young farmers and individuals who are interested in working in agriculture;
  • To connect those seeking land for agriculture with those who have it;
  • To determine what our farming community needs in terms of support and information, with the goal of organizing further social events, workshops, and information sessions through government and agricultural organizations such as Young Agrarians.

The first and last points are our main goals…we hope that this event will be the first of many!

We are looking forward to connecting with our fellow farmers!
