Description and historical use of land available for farming
For the last seven years this land has been farmed by a passionate farmer who grew eggplant, carrots, cauliflower, beans, peppers, tomatoes, root vegetables, lettuce and greens, garlic, apricots, apples and peaches. Before this the property was a peach orchard. Organic practices have been in place for decades. The land overlooks Skaha Lake and is flat.
Long-term goal or vision for land
The goals are to establish a farmer that is passionate and experienced to create a sustainable farm using organic techniques and perhaps be apart of a larger vision as having educational events that offer farm courses.
