Our world is changing, and we need to change alongside. The Faculty of Land and Food Systems (LFS) at the University of British
Columbia is where science meets society’s urgent needs. We need to protect our water, build resilience into our food
supply, and figure out how to do it all with rising temperatures and shifting weather patterns. We need to figure
out how better to feed humans, how better to understand the way our food nourishes and powers us, and how better
to care for our food resources.
My intention is not to say don't plant, don't do community gardens, but I don't think it is necessarily in the best interest of Vancouver to push something without informing people of all the considerations they need to make.
I'm very proud to be part of Purdys. I couldn't have predicted when I was going to UBC that I would one day be President of Purdys, but I knew that whatever I was going to do, I was going to love it and be successful at it.
