FarmFolk CityFolk, Young Agrarians and the BC Food Systems Network are collaborating to raise money to support young food producers to attend the Network’s 14th Annual Conference on Gambier Island, from July 5th - July 8th, 2012!
Young food growers often have limited financial resources and are unable to attend the Conference unless sponsored. Less than 5% of BC’s food producers are 34 and under, with over 50% 59 and up. Food production is labour and resource intensive and it is often difficult for young people to sustain themselves. Our focus is to support the next generation of food producers to build relationships and connections to resources that will support them to grow food and thrive.
