The Kelowna Christian School undertook a very interesting project. Students were challenged to come up with ideas on how to best employ Agricultural land beside the school. Teams of students formed, and then learned about the Agricultural Land Reserve and how the Commission makes decisions. They had to learn how to use farmland to its highest and best use within existing rules and regulations. I had a chance to view many of the proposals. I was very impressed with how the students approached the challenge. There were many creative ideas generated. Here are a few models the students created.
Thanks to Mr. Brent MacAthur and his colleages for putting this great project together. Personally, I was inspired by the creative energy in the room. Thanks also to Mr. Todd Cashin, from the City of Kelowna, who also helped the students navigate the agricultural rules and regulations.
