Event description

Description

Langley farmers of all types are invited to participate in developing a farm organization.

With 1,300 farms in Langley, and 75% of the Township's land in the ALR, agriculture is a major element of our community. A farm-centred organization could help local producers access resources and have a voice to government. Like Farmers' Institutes of the past, it could:

  • keep farmers informed about agricultural news (ex: the changes to ALR regulations, new funding opportunities)
  • represent Langley farmers to different levels and agencies of the government (ex: ToL, BC Ministry of Agriculture)
  • offer education on best practices (ex: dealing with invasive plants, maximizing farm tax benefits)
  • collaborate with other organizations (ex: commodity associations, farmers' markets, fairs)
  • and more, if the membership supports ideas (ex: bulk purchasing, promoting Langley ag products, tool sharing, mentorships for new farmers, etc.)

Join in this evening of discussion to give input on what this organization should look like -- and how it could help you.

Dinner provided.
