Following the banquet and awards on Monday evening of the conference, we have arranged for tours of the Olds College Smart Ag Innovation Centre and the Olds College Greenhouses. These tours are optional and have limited capacity so you must pre-register on the conference registration website. Tours will be filled on a first come first serve basis based on tour capacity, and are open to conference delegates and banquet guests.

The Olds College greenhouses are used by students in the areas of Turfgrass Management, Horticulture, Agriculture and Land and Water and produce a diverse range of plant life including annuals and perennials for the campus gardens and summer containers.

The Olds College Smart Ag Innovation Centre was created within the former President's House, a nondescript farmhouse from the outside, but inside featuring a number of elements that are designed to contribute to the academic excellence of students, bolster applied research, decrease the environmental footprint of the Smart Farm and be an industry leader in Smart Agriculture.

Land Owners Guide

The Landowners' Guide to Land Agreements has officially been launched and is available online.

This booklet was created with input from the Land Matters Group’s Subcommittee on Landowner Guidance (Subcommittee). The Subcommittee was officially struck in January 2016 and included landowners, community and industry representatives. They provided direction for this document, as well as recommendations for future resources for landowners.
