Centre for Sustainable Food Systems
The Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm (CSFS) is a teaching and research centre and local-to-global food hub working towards a more sustainable, food-secure future. Our living laboratory is committed to finding solutions to local and global challenges facing food systems sustainability.
A 24-hectare integrated production farm, the UBC Farm is situated within a 90-year-old coastal hemlock forest and comprises cultivated annual crop fields, perennial hedgerows and orchards, pasture, teaching gardens, and forest stands.
