Some encouraging news for our area’s latent agriculture sector.
More and more citizens have been asking Columbia Basin Trust to dedicate broader resources to food security.
Communications Director Delphi Hoodicoff says the Trust will commit to getting more involved if agriculture does indeed prove to be a major priority once they distill recent widespread public engagement.
And she adds it doesn’t need to be identified as a strategic priority to get more attention.
The public engagement results should be collated by late spring.
Affordable housing and the economy are among other major issues they’re hearing about.
