Commercial Agriculture in Yellowknife is still a very new industry. Still many only see agriculture as the activity of growing food in one’s backyard. Bush Order Provisions is here to prove that wrong and to show that small-scale commercial agriculture is a viable operation, one that can be tested and implemented again and again to bring further food production to Yellowknife and the NWT.
On March 22, 2021, Kyle spoke at the City of Yellowknife Governance and Priorities Committee Meeting (lunchtime city council meeting) on our feedback and recommendations of the implementation plan being put forward to City Council from City Administration on the GROW: Yellowknife Food and Agriculture Strategy, which was developed in 2018 and adopted by City Council in 2019.
Below is the webcast of Kyle’s presentation to Yellowknife City Council, as well as the PDF presentation. Kyle begins speaking at about the 3:40 mark.
If you have any comments on commercial agriculture in Yellowknife, we’d love to hear them.
