News of Interest to Farmers



Chris Bodnar, owner and operator of Close to Home Organics, who was the keynote presenter at the Kaslo Farm Food Fork Conference two years ago is giving a free online business planning course for farmers. Read below for details on how to participate.

FREE Short course on Farm Business Planning with Chris Bodnar.

When: Thursdays, March 1, 8, & 22
Time: 6:30PM to 8PM
How much: Free
Where: online (and peer groups in various locations around BC)
Presenter: Chris Bodnar, owner & operator of Close to Home Organics.

Managing your farm as a business is an important but often neglected component of operating a farm. Recent research shows that farmers who create and use business planning are more confident, more profitable and more able to take advantage of new opportunities. This short course will introduce participants to the concept of farm business planning through some practical, hands-on exercises. Teaching content will reference Ministry of Agriculture resources, primarily the New Farm Start-Up guide, and introduce participants to options for further support through the Ministry.

Session 1: Setting goals and starting a business plan
Session 2: Determining production and marketing options
Session 3: Assembling and using a plan, plus accessing resources to help

For more information and registration:

Note: It is not necessary to participate in the peer groups locations. This course can be done from home by anyone with an internet connection.

Marblehead Hours

From Director Watson: Feb 8

While I am not happy to report this, it is better then what was being proposed.

At our recent Central Resource Recovery Committee, staff conducted a review of residents use of our transfer stations and proposed changes accordingly. For Marblehead, the recommendation was for the hours to be reduced to Saturdays only. Given the limitation on access with only one day a week, I fought against it and was successful keeping Wednesday and Saturdays but the hours were reduced to 10-2pm.

The RDCK will advertise the change to facility hours, but wanted to first give the LV a heads up. I believe the changes take effect April 1st
