Understanding Our Practices from Seed to Scrap
The first Urban Farming Forum, which took place in 2011, invited food security advocates, policy makers, and urban farmers alike to engage in vibrant discourse around urban farming, as well as discuss ways in which Vancouver’s Greenest City goals could be met in the context of urban farming policy. The 2012 installment, at the HiVE in Vancouver, was centered around urban farmers specifically to allow for a more concerted effort at data collection and discussion most relevant to the farmers themselves as part of a year long research project into urban farming practices in Metro Vancouver.
