UBC Farm is the last piece of working farmland in Vancouver. It is an important site not only for growing food, but also for academic research to improve sustainable food production practices. The University Administration, however, wants to build private residential neighberhoods over the farm to make profit. I want to save the farm.
-->The Student Environment Centre (SEC) and Friends of the UBC Farm (FOF) are thrilled to be hosting a conference at the end of September entitled “Food is Fundamental”. The conference is being held to educate, discuss and take action on pressing “food issues” that concern people, the environment and the economy in both local and global contexts.
