Peace Country Classic Agri-Show

Grande Prairie's picture

Agriculture is one of the major parts of the County's economy. What opportunities do you see for further developing it in the next decade and beyond?

Ideas

We need to push our public facilities to use good food. Local. Isn't it funny that the worst food we get is in the hospital, and it is the place that you need too nutrition to help your body heal. There are studies where it reduced the average stay by 1 day due to healthy and good food being available.

Thank-you, AshleyH, for your comments. Supporting local producers is something we can all agree with. If you would like more information on supporting locally, the Economic Development group at the County has been working on an initiative with other organizations called Think Local Market. The hope is that local producers sign onto this exciting project and consumers can easily find local products. Check out http://thinklocalmarket.com/ for more information.
