Are you Interested in Attending a Farm Incubator Workshop?

The City of Kamloops is partnering with Community Futures Thompson Country to present a workshop on a Farm Business Incubator opportunity for Kamloops on June 24th. This is the first step toward the implementation of the City's Agriculture Area Plan, adopted by City Council in 2013.  The workshop will determine the demand for a Farm Business Incubator within Kamloops and the surrounding region.

 

If the program is developed it would provide the tools and resources to help aspiring agricultural entrepreneurs develop and manage viable farm enterprises in Kamloops. An agriculture business incubator can help reduce the traditional barriers to success for new farm businesses by providing access to land, housing, shared equipment, infrastructure, low-interest capital, business mentoring and training in advanced practical skills. Launching farm-based businesses in the supportive, lower-risk environment of the Incubator greatly increases the likelihood of business viability and success.
