GORDON CAMPBELL SUPPORTS SAVING UBC FARM — LAST OF ITS KIND IN VANCOUVER
Premier Gordon Campbell, MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey, has added his voice to UBC’s decision to protect 24 hectares of land, which includes the UBC Farm, from development.
Agriculture has been a part of the University for more than 90 years. Today, the UBC Farm is the last operating farm in Vancouver and serves as a model for urban agriculture, a research site for sustainable food production and sustainability education.
In addition to being a unique ecosystem balancing cultivated and native plants and animals, the UBC Farm is also a source of fresh, local produce, and a hub for community learning.
