“It’s really important that we develop more sustainable ways to grow food. Our food system is in crisis right now. We need to be able to establish methodologies that support farmers, support the environment and continue to provide food for generations to come. Organic is a promising practice and one that we need more research and development in. We need to be able to help farmers develop strategies that make organic into the production system that we know it can be.”
– Sean Smukler, Director of the CSFS at UBC Farm
