The Abbotsford Chamber’s Annual Agriculture Bus Tour has become a favorite event for the Fraser Valley business community. The details for this year’s tour have just been announced and it will be taking place on Friday, June 21, 2013.
Guests will have the opportunity to find out what makes Abbotsford the Agricultural Capital of Canada by touring a variety of local agriculture businesses.
In the morning guests will load buses at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, from there we will visit all the stops on the tour, enjoying snacks, lunch, and networking along the way.
The tour will include four stops – VanderMeulen Greenhouses Inc., Van Eekelen Enterprises Ltd., Lakeland Flowers Ltd. and Paragon Farms.
Guests will be treated to a catered lunch at Lakeland Flowers Ltd. with guest speaker Kim Sutherland, Regional Agrologist, BC Ministry of Agriculture and Lands.
This is a chance for Chamber members and non-members to see how agriculture contributes more than $1.8 billion for our city’s economy and generates over 11,300 jobs in Abbotsford.
