Alumni's study on community gardens makes news

March 21, 2016

Congratulations to our alumni, Grant Rice, for the media coverage of his study on community gardens in Metro Vancouver, which was done for the nonprofit group, Burnaby Food First.

Grant is quoted in the story, which appeared in The Province on March 21.

“Growing food can do a great deal of good. Very little investment is needed,” said Rice, a longtime food advocate. “Beyond the social connections, there is a real need for immigrants. Many of them come from farming backgrounds.”
