The project library is an access point to decades of publications, reports, posters, and related materials from research projects, directed studies, and other activities that have taken place at the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems.

We are currently in the process of linking items in our archives to this library. Please continue to check back as we build a comprehensive repository of research and academic activities from students, faculty, community members, and visiting scientists.

If you have questions about any of the material presented here (or are interested in learning more about the research potential of our site at UBC Farm), please contact
