The Power of School Farms and Urban Agriculture

Thursday, February 11th, 2021

For Aaren Topley, B.C.’s front-line workers inspire him to continue learning, researching, and working with all things food. “Whether that’s a teacher doing a school garden or a meal program, or someone providing community meal programs to people that are living on the streets,” he said. “Those people really inspire me day today. I get to connect with them.”

Topley has worked in food system development for eight years and is now the provincial manager of Can You Dig It at the Public Health Association of BC. For the past four years, he has worked with Farm to School BC, which brings fresh and sustainable produce to schools across the province. Follow this link to learn more.
