Agriculture

River deltas provide the best nutrient-rich soils, and ours is one of the best in the world. Delta is home to British Columbia’s most fertile farmland, just next door to many of our homes.  Future generations will depend on our success conserving this extraordinary land, by preserving the existing balance between rural and urban spaces in Delta South.

Our vibrant, active farming community carry the mantle of our region's great pioneering and agricultural heritage.
