A new article which appeared in yesterday’s Vancouver Sun casts doubt on the future of the farm. As farm friends will already know, the land we are on is under threat of development, despite the fact that UBC’s own design workshops have supported the fact that there is plenty of other viable land to be developed on campus. The Farm is being falsely pitted against much needed student housing and institutional development, when in truth there is room for all of these things.
If you care about the Farm, please comment on the Sun article here. Tell other Vancouverites how important this place is, and stress the point that keeping us at our current size and location is essential – this land is our agricultural heritage, farms can’t just be moved around like furniture.
