Location: 
Kelowna

The 4th annual provincial workshop hosted by the BC Agricultural Climate Adaptation Research Network will be held in Kelowna, BC on December 2 – 3, 2019. This is ACARN’s biggest annual event and our chance to bring people together from across the province who are working on climate adaptation in the BC agriculture sector.

Join us for:

  • An afternoon of producer-focused sessions with BC researchers and producers discussing practices they have been testing in the field to improve soil health, store carbon, reduce the impacts of pests and disease, and adapt to increasingly variable weather. Sessions are geared to tree fruit and wine grape production.
     
  • Featured keynote speakers bringing expertise from the Washington state tree fruit industry (Dr. Lee Kalcsits) and the California wine industry (Dr. Ann Thrupp) into BC conversations on agricultural adaptation research and strategies
     
  • A banquet dinner following the keynote presentations to provide more time for networking & getting to know all of the great people interested in agricultural adaptation
     
  • A full day focused on collaboration to increase collaboration and connections between researchers and research partners
