Explore agriculture at PARC open house

Are you curious about how food and farming are improved through research? Then head over to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre. The Centre is hosting an open house on Saturday, July 27, to coincide with the Agassiz Slow Food Cycle tour.

Find out how the experts at PARC-Agassiz are contributing to modern agriculture by helping the sector produce healthier, safer, higher quality, and more sustainable food for Canadians. Whether it’s integrated pest management, horticulture, or nutrient management, research at the Centre covers a range of topics important in the Fraser Valley and beyond.

The open house will feature interactive exhibits, research displays, a tractor tour of the research plots, and a chance to meet the Centre’s research technicians, farmhands, biologists, and scientists. Highlights will include two cake cuttings, samples of fresh berries, and opportunities to learn about plants, fungi, bacteria, and more.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
