2018 Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday May 22 at Corran Ban Hall (1231 Rte 6).

Our guest speaker for the evening, Evan MacDonald, will discuss “Sustainable Agriculture Resources – using new technology for soil conservation.”

Evan works in the Sustainable Agriculture Resources division within the PEI Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. He will chat about how they use drones, how they turn the information collected by drone into something useful on the land that helps keep silt out of our streams; how LiDAR (elevation) data can be used to identify higher risk areas for erosion (areas of concentrated flow); and available funding programs (focusing on Agriculture Stewardship and Soil conservation in particular).

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.Share on Facebook
