Living Labs - Farm Partner Expression of Interest

BC's Living Lab is a producer-led program focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and strengthening the climate resiliency of our nation's food systems. The Forage and Cattle Project is investigating Extended Grazing Season and Winter-Feeding Strategies.

The project is looking for interested Farm Partners to participate in the program. The goal is to select farm partners and locations that are representative of the region they are located, in order to increase the relevance of the results for the surrounding farm operations.

If you are interested in being a farm partner, please fill out the form below. Mother sites will be selected and installed for spring 2023; daughter sites will be selected in the summer of 2023 with implementation in either fall 2023 or spring 2024.
