Policy Brief: Farmland Conservation and Access Program
Policy Brief: Role of Local Government in Promoting Farmlands and Farm Viability
This Policy Brief proposes the establishment of a CRD Farmland Conservation and Access Program to permanently secure regional farmland for agricultural use and allow access to farmers at affordable rates.
The Growing New Farmers program is an initiative supported by Vancity that is working to get behind new growers, linking them to resources, micro loans, land, and other growers to kick start successful farm businesses.
While we work to advocate for the return of extension services, farmers are getting together to share their success and knowledge within the farm community. Farmer2Farmer is a network, and mentor pool and the Farmer2Farmer conference brings people together on the subject.
