New entrants into agriculture in the Creston Valley can access support through a Young Agrarians initiative.
The Business Mentorship Program matches successful local farm operations with people in their first year of farm operations.
BC Coordinator, Sara Dent says it’s for small diversified vegetable or animal producers.
She says this is in line with an industry that is changing.
The Young Agrarians is a network of rural and urban farmers, market gardeners, seed savers, food activists and food-farmer organizations.
The deadline for the Business Mentorship Program in Creston is November 8th.
