Agriculture & Horticilutre LEAP Workshop

2014 - Ag & Hort Leap is a regional agricultural conference previously held in Quesnel in 2011 and 2012 over one day in each of those years. The lack of funding prevented a conference being held in 2013 but the 2014 conference was, from the start, intended to be bigger and better than ever before.

Ag & Hort Leap 2014 was held on 8 and 9 February 2014 with over 160 in attendance. Over the two days the conference hosted 24 individual speakers addressing 20 workshops and 7 plenary sessions. In addition there was a conference dinner on the Saturday night attended by 65 guests.

The objectives of the conference were to; (a) help, encourage and educate new entrants to farming, (b) help build local food producing capacity, (c) facilitate networking between producers, their suppliers and their customers and (d) assist farmers in diversifying into new and growing markets.
