The Sunshine Coast Regional District is hosting a pair of community workshops on Persephone Brewing Company’s application for non-farm use.

The property is located in the Agricultural Land Reserve and that means there are limits on buildings and activities taking place there that are not related to operating a farm.

On top of that, because Persephone brings in more than 50 per cent of the ingredients it uses at the brewery the business is considered non-farm use.

The final workshop is tomorrow (21st) at the Eric Cardinal Hall.

According to the SCRD, the two workshops will allow the public to provide feedback through focused discussions that will help the District board provide a community response to Persephone’s application for a non-farm use of its land and buildings.

The Agricultural Land Commission will make the final decision.
