The theme of this year’s Flathead Valley Agricultural Forum will be: “How Can Agriculture Work Better in the Flathead?”
 
The program will include panel discussions with a diverse number of agri-business professionals. Iin addition to exploring the many ways agriculture impacts the Flathead Valley community, it will ask what’s needed to make agriculture more productive.
 
Panel members will represent conventional agricultural operations, local producers including Community Supported Agriculture, farm-to table, and farm-to cafeteria programs, and businesses that process, package, and distribute local farm products. Panel discussions will also include educators from FVCC, Montana State University Extension, and District #5 Future Farmers of America (FFA)/Vo-Ag, as well as participation from the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce.
 
MLR is a private land trust that works to develop voluntary conservation easements with private landowners. The mission of MLR is to partner with private landowners to permanently protect agricultural lands, fish and wildlife habitat, and open space.
 
There is no charge to attend. The prgram will be held in the Flathead Valley Community College’s Arts and Technology Building.
