"The Shuswap Agricultural Strategy is shaping up quickly, but have you had your say?"

The Shuswap Agricultural Strategies project is well underway, after a great public event in September where we had almost 50 producers and other members of the community involved in mapping agricultural assets in the Shuswap region. The results of that exercise are up on the website, and now you have the opportunity to get your knowledge on the map and share your ideas for strengthening Shuswap agriculture--without even having to leave your own home or office!

Summer (like all of the other seasons) is extraordinary in the Shuswap!
