Island Agriculture Show

Growing Stability in Uncertain Times

The 2023 Island Agriculture Show promotes agriculture and offers conference sessions and provides a venue for farmers, rural landowners, farm organizations, equipment dealers, service providers and the general public to learn, connect and engage. There are also educational workshops on various agricultural topics, many relating to access of food.


AVFSS will be attending the show and we invite you to come visit us at the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District's exhibition table.   

Pruning Workshop

We are looking forward to hosting a fruit tree pruning workshop in late winter/early spring.

At this moment we are looking for properties to host the event; if you have a several types of fruit trees or bushes that could use some maintenance contact us to participate!

Learn how to care for the health of your trees to minimize damage, prevent disease and increase the life and productivity of your fruit trees.
