LUSH Valley hosting forum on urban agriculture
Courtenay residents are invited to share their thoughts on backyard agricultural practices.
The LUSH Valley Food Action Society is holding an open forum on Wednesday, February 8th – covering activities like backyard bee-keeping and backyard produce sales, which are currently not allowed in the city of Courtenay, unless they’re in a land-use zone dedicated to this practice.
LUSH spokesperson Jessica Hawkins says there’s a growing interest in urban agriculture, and they look forward to hearing what residents have to say.
Hawkins says a survey on the subject will be available on the LUSH website starting February 8th.
The forum goes on February 8th at 7 PM at the North Island College Stan Hagen Theatre.
Hawkins says two other open houses will take place later in the month.
