Chilliwack’s popular Agriculture Tour is going virtual in 2020.
In each of the last 18 years, people have been invited to board buses and visit farming operations that produce everything from honey to blueberries, dairy to crickets.
Thanks to COVID-19, that can’t happen.
So online it goes, through the Chilliwack Economic Partners (CEPCO) Facebook page and Instagram feed. New ‘tour stops’ will be posted weekly, starting with a highlight video from the last three years.
“This is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of agriculture in our community, to bring out a lot of different people from the area to experience that for themselves, and see the economic impact that agriculture has for Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley,” CEPCO president Brian Coombes said in the video.
