The Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce is set to host its highly anticipated annual Agriculture Bus Tour on June 16. This year’s event spotlights the remarkable achievements of local agriculture businesses, emphasizing their significant impact on the community. The tour will feature esteemed guest speaker Honourable Pam Alexis, Minister of Agriculture and Food and MLA for Abbotsford – Mission.
In the morning, guests will meet at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre and be treated to coffee & scones from Hugs in a Mug Coffee Bistro.
We will begin the tour at Barrowtown Pump Station, joined by the City of Abbotsford’s Mayor Ross Siemens, who will discuss the events of the 2021 floods.
Next, the tour will visit Lakeland Flowers where guests will have the opportunity to see all the work that goes into the legendary ‘Tulip Festival’ after it wraps up as well as what they have coming up for the following season.
Following Lakeland Flowers, the tour will head to Aright Greentech to learn about what goes into creating a sustainable alternative for energy generation and distribution alongside maintaining traditional farming practices to harvest, store, and provide crops in environmentally-friendly ways.
Guests will head to Taves Estate Cidery to enjoy lunch and a flight of their delicious cider. We will be joined by guest speaker Pam Alexis who will address the audience, sharing her perspectives on the agriculture industry.
