Kelowna residents and local farmers are reminded of an opportunity to review the draft Agriculture Plan at an upcoming public information session.

  • Wednesday, June 21
  • 4-6:30 p.m.
  • Reid Hall, Benvoulin Heritage Park (2279 Benvoulin Road, Kelowna)

Those unable to attend the public information session are encouraged to provide their feedback online until June 30 at

The Agriculture Plan focuses on the community’s farm area to discover practical solutions to challenges, identify opportunities to strengthen farming and ultimately contribute to agriculture and the community’s long-term sustainability.

This project is funded in part by the Real Estate Foundation of BC and the governments of Canada and British Columbia through the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC.
