Career Opportunities

There is an increased awareness for local food production and food security issues in our community. Completing the farm school program will prepare you for a career in operating your own farm, working with non-profit food organizations, or becoming a food advocate and educator in the community. Whether it's in your local community or at the provincial/federal level, the demand for experts in agriculture and food production industry are only increasing. In the past years, students in this program have successfully started their own farm operations, worked for other farms, or a variety of organizations.

Career opportunities include, but not limited to:

  • Farm Owner-Operator
  • Farm Manager
  • Head Farmer or Farm Hand
  • Program coordinator
  • Education coordinator
  • Volunteer coordinator
  • Instructors
  • Food Distributor
  • Food Procurer
  • Agriculture Instructor


We had our first graduating cohort in 2010 from the Richmond Farm School and in 2015 from the Tsawwassen Farm School. Some alumni have pursued a career and lifestyle in farming, and some have gone on to working for food community groups.
