Protect Early Farmland in BC

The farmland is located on 192nd Street in Campbell Heights, Surrey BC. With its beach-like sandy soil upon a level hill-top, it never floods, it can be planted or harvested on nearly any day of the year and has a special micro-climate suited for early production. Western Canada’s potato harvest starts on this farmland each year. Thereafter, an estimated 30-50 million servings of potatoes, carrots, cabbage, parsnips, and squash are produced from the land annually. That’s enough fresh food to put a vegetable serving on every Metro-Vancouverite’s dinner plate for 2-3 weeks. As harvest begins before other vegetable fields in BC, this land reduces BC’s reliance on imported vegetables.  

Sadly, this exact parcel of farmland is slated to be sold and developed into industrial buildings.

Join the call to protect the unique 300-acre parcel of prime farmland for current and future generations.
