Sustainable Agriculture

The South Okanagan-Similkameen is a unique and diverse landscape – with exceptional agriculture, recreation, rural living, and stunning natural areas. We are also a hotspot for nature. Many rare species and sensitive ecosystems also call this place home. By working together, we can take care of this special place and continue to enjoy all the benefits from nature – now, and for the future.

What is Sustainable Agriculture?

What if we could ensure the continued production of food and other agricultural products, and the functioning of healthy ecosystems over time, so that we can rely on the benefits of both now, and in the future?

Sustainable agriculture is based on using environmentally-friendly farming practices and renewable resources, minimizing waste, enhancing natural biodiversity, and encouraging knowledge-sharing in the farming community.
