The TFN Farm School is now accepting applications for the 2016 season!
The Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN) Farm School is a collaboration between the TFN and the Institute for Sustainable Food Systems (ISFS) at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU). First of its kind, the school fuses sustainable agriculture and traditional indigenous food systems as tools to build community and create dialogue around land stewardship for the future. The school program is open to all with curiosity on how to feed a growing population while restoring the land. The program curriculum takes place on traditional TFN lands on a 20 acre farm that boasts a traditional medicine garden, a 2 acre mixed fruit orchard, an organic market garden, farm animals and incubator plots for the students that graduate from the program. The TFN Farm School is a gathering place to raise awareness around human scaled alternative food production systems.
