Discover the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Farm, home of the only agriculture program in Canada with a four-year degree curriculum entirely focused on organic production!

Situated atop an ancient peat bog at the Garden City Lands in Richmond, BC, the KPU teaching and research farm highlights diversified, sustainable, regenerative and organic production practices. The farm has a solar-heated dome greenhouse, three movable high tunnels, beetle banks for beneficial insect habitat, and an innovative approach to carbon-negative farming and peat restoration.
