Activities must impact more than one municipality in the region, thereby having a regional scope. Eligible activities must take place in the Vancouver metropolitan area.

1. The agriculture awareness activity is unique. A high score will be given to awareness activities that are one of a kind in the region and are currently not being done by another organization in Metro Vancouver.

3. The activity reaches out to culturally diverse audiences, urban residents, youth or K-12 school children. A high score will be awarded to when these audiences are targeted in the awareness activity.

4. The activity contributes to the following desirable outcomes that support regional policy objectives, where a high score is awarded when the agriculture awareness activity aligns with two or more of the regional policy objectives.

  • Educates residents about local food production;
  • Enhances food literacy and skills in schools;
  • Communicates how food choices support the local economy;
  • Supports the next generation of food producers; and
