The Tsawwassen Farm School (TFS) is a collaboration between the Tsawwassen First Nation (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 takes place at our 20 acre organic working farm on traditional TFN lands. The farm boasts a traditional medicine garden, a mixed fruit orchard, a market garden, farm animals including chickens and pigs, and incubator plots on which program graduates can launch their farm businesses. Our Tsawwassen Farm is a gathering place to learn about human scaled alternative food production systems. Join us and learn to become a farmer!
