The BC Government has a new program to address the lack of affordable farmland in the province.
The BC Land Matching Program connects new and young farmers with local landowners.
Land Matchers will be assigned to farmlands across the province and work to create positive relationships between land owners and workers.
“We will be open to new applications for vendors,” Lara says. “Especially those who are growing fruits and veggies. We Already work with the Young Agrarians in our region and we want to strengthen that partnership with them.”
Livia Lara, Manager for Cranbrook Farmer’s Market says the market is happy with the plan and is looking forward to an increase in vendors.
