30nov8:30 am4:30 pm'Roots to Success' Risk Management Workshops for BC Fruit Tree and Grape Growers

Event Details

Farm life can be unpredictable, even on the best days – weather, pests, market conditions, relationships, and more recently, COVID-19 can affect not only day-to-day farm management but the future of the operation altogether. In recent years, producers in B.C. have seen the devastating effects that certain risks can have on a farm. But, with risk, also comes opportunity for those who are positioned to take calculated risks. This is why it’s important to plan for risk.

Farm Management Canada and the B.C Government invites Fruit Tree and Grape Growers in the province of British Columbia to attend one of two Roots to Success Risk Management workshops taking place at the end of November to increase their ability to assess and address risks using a comprehensive approach to managing risk on the farm.

Thanks to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Agri-Risk Initiatives Program and to the BC Ministry of Agriculture and Food, this workshop is free to producers.

The workshop will allow you to:

Gain knowledge, tools and resources to make better business decisions

Share best practices and lessons learned with other producers

Begin to create a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your farm

 

Producers in B.C. are invited to register to one of the following workshops:

November 28, 2022
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time
Holiday Inn Osooyos, BC

 

November 30, 2022
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time
Soma Cidery, Kelowna BC

IMPORTANT: Please note that these are interactive workshops. Given their nature, we have limited the number of participants for each workshop.

By participating in this workshop, you will gain free access to AgriShield®, an online risk management platform for a period of one year.

Please note thee following:

  • These workshops are designed for BC Fruit Tree and Grape Growers only. For this reason, your registration will be reviewed. If your registration is accepted, you will receive a follow-up email containing instructions about the event. Other workshops that are better suited to other producers and professions will be advertised in the future.
  • Space is limited and will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
