A free workshop on alternate revenue streams for agriculture producers in the Cariboo Chilcotin is coming to the lakecity next week.

Don Bassermann, billed as an agriculture advocate, rebel gardener and entrepreneur will be the keynote speaker at the workshop taking place in the Thompson Rivers University cafeteria Wednesday, Nov. 6, starting at 7 p.m.

This free workshop with door prizes is sponsored by the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition.

Bassermann is a dynamic motivational speaker with a message who can walk the talk, reports the coalition.

He is passionate about all local agriculture from the back yard gardener, right up to the full- on producer.

He practices what he preaches and claims that he can earn $15,000 out of three Prince George back yards.

Sustainable and profitable producers are the key to the development of this important sector.

He will also be viewing a short video on the evolving opportunity of the arctic char production.
