Agriculture is constantly adapting to changes in technology, consumer expectations, climate - you name it. OWC supports agricultural watershed stewardship to ensure producers can continue their stewardship activities as they adapt to changing conditions. We collected the community's input to craft our next 3 years of agricultural programming.                                     

Each session hosted a panel of local Ag experts with updates on current agricultural stewardship projects in the area. The panel was followed by round table discussions with participants on:

  • The direction/future of agriculture in Southern Alberta.
  • How the OWC can support the Ag community & the rural way of life.
