Surviving Hard Times


Oct 6, 2022

Joining us today to discuss sustainable agriculture and food systems is Andy Smith. Andy is the Farm Manager at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), where he works in collaboration with the Department of Sustainable Agriculture’s teaching faculty. 

Andy and his colleagues are putting forth an effort to expand and enhance KPU’s 20-acre urban teaching and research farm – which includes acquiring organic certification for the farm. By allowing students to interact with hands-on agricultural methods, Andy is cultivating the next generation of sustainable farmers…

Join the conversation now to learn about:

  • Challenges that farmers are facing in today’s age.
  • The importance of providing students with hands-on farming experience.
  • What peat moss is, where it grows, and how it affects seedling growth. 

What does it take to grow plants efficiently and sustainably? Andy answers this question and others like it in this informative discussion on agriculture!
