FACULTY OF LAND AND FOOD SYSTEMS
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.
Jordan Maynard started Gibsons Farm in 2020 with his partner Robin Friesen. It’s a 40-minute ferry ride north of Vancouver, and a unique place that combines sustainable agricultural practices, promotion of local food products, and children’s programs offering outdoor experiences related to agriculture, managing land, and making food.
