Project Description

Through the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, I work on projects related to local and regional food systems, food literacy (specifically in the context of farm to school programs), food policy, and agricultural land use.  I also work on developing resources to help farmers, processors, and others interested in agriculture and food to access and use research results to support the sustainability and resilience of their operations.  I am jointly appointed at the University of the Fraser Valley.
Sample recent publications:
