BV GroundbreakersLocal Food - Know It, Sow It, Grow It, Eat It!

Youth on Farms

  • Making Hay

  • Garlic Harvest

  • Milking

Thanks to Wetzink’wa Community Forest grants and the Canada Summer Jobs program, Groundbreakers is able to connect local food producers with young people looking for work and training on a variety of local farms in the Bulkley Valley.

Youth receive hands-on farming and gardening experience that can lead to future employment in the industry or give them the skills and confidence to start their own agriculture related business. Producers receive young people to work with them through Groundbreakers' wage subsidy and hiring program. This allows producers to not only affordably add to the skilled workforce of their operation, but also to the local agriculture workforce.

Are you a farmer, or a youth (15-30) interested in this program? Email us for more information.
