Food for Thought: Agriculture In the ACRD

In 2011, the ACRD Board of Directors adopted the Alberni Valley Agricultural Plan which sets a vision for developing the resources to allow the community to produce 40% of the food consumed locally within 20 years. Planning staff and the consultants hired to formulate the Plan developed 12 primary goals to achieve this vision with the cooperation of the ACRD Agricultural Advisory Committee, various agriculture, government and First Nations stakeholders and extensive public consultation. Each of the primary goals includes individual action items needed to carry out the overall objective of the Plan.

The Plan and background documents can be found here: AV Ag Plan
